Film Review: High Society (2018) (Drama)

High Society
2018
MA15+
Hyuk Byun (Director)
Park Hae-il, Su Ae, Yoon Je-moon
Drama
Netflix

A deputy curator of a chaebol-funded art gallery and her husband, a politically ambitious economics professor, will do anything to join the ├╝ber-elite. (Synopsis)

High Society was an okay drama that had a number of interesting moments and ideas; however, I never became fully invested in any of the characters or cared about what would happen to them, so overall it didn't captivate me. In some ways, I am surprised it got away with a MA15+ rating, as the sex scenes were frequent and often fairly explicit. Even my husband, sitting beside me on the sofa with his headphones on, working on his laptop, commented that every time he glanced up at the screen it was another sex scene! That kind of content doesn't worry me in the slightest, but if it's not your sort of thing, this probably isn't the movie for you. In the end I am giving it 3.5 stars. It wasn't bad and had some good ideas, but it's not a film I feel in love with or would rush to watch again.
