  • Director Mipo Oh (The Light Shines Only There) returns with another masterfully directed film that is both heart wrenching and heart-warming. With Being Good, she shows us how a simple act of kindness can blossom and make a difference in someone’s life, teaching us about love by showing us where it’s missing.
