Our take

Ruminating on life and architecture in the eponymous Indiana city, this meditative drama is the feature debut from writer-director Kogonada (After Yang). As soulful as it is conceptually rigorous, Columbus vitally reinvigorates the emotional and intellectual awakenings of the coming-of-age genre.
