Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

In the dark karaoke rooms of Los Angeles's Koreatown stripmalls, Kasie works as a doumi girl, a young hostess paid to cater to rich businessmen's capricious whims. As she struggles to hide her sorrow through soju- and MDMA-fueled nights, her mind is focused on one thing: earning enough tips to continue providing for her bedridden father. When her father's caretaker unexpectedly quits, Kasie seeks help from her estranged brother, and the siblings are forced to reconnect and reconcile the suppressed trauma that lead to their separation.

[Chon's] work is haunting and flirts with delirium, but at all times feels urgently alive.

[A] gorgeously shot and sensitively acted drama, a demonstration of range from the actor-turned-director.

Ms. Purple was an honest love note to the flawed amalgamation of dreams and nightmares that Angelenos call home. It is also another promising piece from Chon that has us on notice.
