Director: Kim Yong-hwa

Hanna is an easy target for jokes. The backup singer for pixie-like pop star Ami is shy and overweight...until the day she decides to get a lifetime’s worth of plastic surgery all at once. This is a stirring Cinderella comedy, complete with liposuction gags.

Monday, August 27, 6:30 PM @ IFC Center + Q&A with Director
