One of the defining films of Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Okja, Snowpiercer), Mother follows the struggles of a woman whose son, who has an unspecified mental impairment, is accused of murder. It seems like an open and shut case, but she enlists her son's sleazy friend and does some snooping in hopes of either vindicating her son or learning the awful truth. (Available on Netflix)
