A divorced, financially strapped father takes his two kids—a complicated 17-year-old girl and a nine-year-old boy with a bubbly smile—to spend the summer at their grandpa’s house, where their newly single aunt has also found refuge. As delicately crafted vignettes of intimate daily life bring each character to life, writer-director Yoon Dan-bi (in her debut feature) exhibits a remarkable maturity in revealing the love, grudges, joys, and sorrow that bind a family together. The subtle yet deeply emotional drama evokes the early family-centered work of Hou Hsiao-Hsien, making Yoon an exciting new talent to watch. Moving On was awarded a Bright Future Award at the 2020 International Film Festival of Rotterdam.
