THE HOUSE OF US (2019)
Thursday 5 November 2020 at 9:30pm Adelaide time | 91 minutes, U12+
The House of Us is a coming-of-age story which would be great for a family audience.
It is the summer holidays, and a young girl named Ha-na is trying her best to get her family back together after fights start breaking out between her parents. Ha-na sets out on a mission to go on a trip to the beach with her family as she realises that’s what brought her parents back together the last time they were in conflict.
However, Ha-na is side-tracked from her mission by two new younger friends, sisters Yoo-mi and Yoo-jin. With a new friendship formed, Ha-na finds that she is not the only one with trouble at home, as the two sisters are in danger of moving houses again having just moved to their new surroundings. Ha-na joins the sisters on a mission to distract potential tenants by playing silly tricks, forming a sisterly bond with the sisters along the way.
