Review: In ‘Seoul Searching,’ Teenagers Explore Their Korean Roots to an ’80s Soundtrack
Seoul Searching opens today, and AABANY is more excited to see it than ever. If you don’t already have plans to join us for our movie outing tonight, be sure to catch the NYT Critics’ Pick some time during its run at AMC Empire 25.
Check out Jeannette Catsoulis’ review in The New York Times by clicking the link above. She states:
An appealingly gung-ho cast and let’s-get-along message make “Seoul Searching” a buoyant, if undisciplined comedy about foreign-raised South Korean teenagers getting in touch with their ethnic roots.
