‘Columbus’ star Haley Lu Richardson portrays ‘architecture nerd’

Haley Lu Richardson describes her “Columbus” character as the No. 1 “architecture nerd” in a movie inspired by buildings and design in the Indiana city.

Richardson visited Indianapolis before attending tonight’s Columbus premiere of the movie directed by Kogonada and co-starring John Cho.

Casey, Richardson’s character in the movie, is a hometown high school grad in Columbus, where buildings designed by Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, Harry Weese and Kevin Roche are found.

Design inspires Casey, who befriends Jin — portrayed by Cho — the son of an architecture expert who has little in common with his father.

Richardson said it takes effort to appreciate architecture in a world of overstimulation.

“There’s so much to see and to hold our attention,” Richardson said during a Facebook Live interview with IndyStar. “Because there’s so much, nothing really holds our attention anymore.”

Check out the complete video interview to learn Richardson’s favorite Columbus building and hear her talk about portraying flapper-era icon Louise Brooks in an upcoming film. For more information, visit Fandango.com.

Movie Synopsis
When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana – a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library.

As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin’s estranged relationship with his father, and Casey’s reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother.

With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, debut director Kogonada’s COLUMBUS unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation. With strong supporting turns from Parker Posey, Rory Culkin, and Michelle Forbes, COLUMBUS is also a showcase for its director’s striking eye for the way physical space can affect emotions.
