Popcorn Culture - Review: Abang Adik

Directed by Jin Ong, Abang Adik has been making the rounds at film festivals and garnering acclaim along the way. The film explores themes that are familiar to many Malaysians: inequality, urban living, and family, through the story of two undocumented orphans living in Malaysia, Abang and Adik. While Abang tries to eke out an honest but modest living, Adik has different dreams - and then an event changes their life and relationship and upsets the fragile balance. We discuss the film, its performances, and what it says about our country (and our film scene!).
