DisOrient 2016 Someone Else
Someone Else (2015) Feature Narrative - 72 min. - English
Director Nelson Kim
Produced by Brandon Harris, Geoffrey Quan
Starring Aaron Yoo, Jackie Chung, Leonardo Nam
SOMEONE ELSE is a surreal drama about the clash of wills between two Korean American cousins. Jamie (Aaron Yoo), a shy young law student hungry for a more vivid, risk-taking existence, visits his wealthy playboy cousin Will (Leonardo Nam) in New York City. Jamie has always looked up to Will for boldly pursuing pleasure and self-gratification in a way that Jamie's own cautious, reserved nature has never dared.
In his quest to emulate Will, Jamie sheds his old identity and gets involved with a mysteriously alluring girl named Kat (Jackie Chung). But in a series of surprising twists, Jamies adventure spirals out of control, and his dream of self-transformation becomes a nightmare that threatens to destroy him.
SOMEONE ELSE begins as a straightforward drama and ends as something quite different, taking the audience on a wild, unsettling ride in which nothing is as it first appears. Its a journey into dark places, lit up along the way by laughter, sex, thriller-worthy surprises, and a compelling central mystery that will leave viewers discussing and debating it long after the movie ends.
