Filmmaker So Yong Kim says that her own life provided the inspiration. Growing up in suburban Los Angeles, she was raised by a single mother who never discussed the issues of love and sex; among her "circle of Korean immigrant teenage friends there was a persistent tension when it came to the topics." In Between Days features newcomer Jiseon Kim as Aimie, a teenage girl who doesn't know how to deal with romantic feelings for her "best and only" friend Tran (Taegu Andy Kang). The minimalist visual style and deliberate pace, so favorably remarked upon by most critics, sounds like a perfect fit for exploring themes of isolation, alienation and frustration. Without having seen it myself, I'm at a disadvantage, but it's been on my "want to see" list for many months. If it doesn't play at a theater near you, don't fret excessively -- the Sundance Channel will be showing it, and no doubt a DVD will be issued -- hopefully without too much delay -- after the theatrical run concludes.
