The quietly stirring, exquisitely photographed “Columbus” is an art-house gem that beautifully illuminates not only the architecture of a small Indiana town, but also the characters that inhabit it.The plot is simple: A book translator named Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Ind., after his distant father, a renowned architect, is hospitalized in a coma.The architectural discussions could have become boringly esoteric, but Cho and Richardson keep things interesting and make the dialogue crackle, creating low-key but deceptively high-impact encounters that change both of their characters.Rory Culkin (never better), as a gradual student who admires Casey; Michelle Forbes (her reliable self), as a recovering meth addict who is Casey’s mother; and Parker Posey (very good), as an academic who is a confidant of Jin.Writer-director-editor Kogonada also has a great character in the town of Columbus, and it’s fascinating to watch how he frames his actors within the confines of their architectural surroundings.
