Columbus is a gorgeous movie directed by first-time feature director Kogonada, and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It stars John Cho, Parker Posey and Haley Lu Richardson, and is a mediation about time and place, and the way physical space informs our emotions. It takes place in the modernist architecture mecca of Columbus, IN, and the buildings in the city are practically a character in the film.
