Minari (2020)

  • Drama
  • 1h 55m

Lee Isaac Chung’s tender and gentle depiction of the American dream sees Jacob - Steven Yeun, Okja (Bong Joon Ho, 2017), Burning (Lee Chang-Dong, 2018), The Walking Dead) - and Monica (Yeri Han) moving their children, Anne and fragile David (Alan S. Kim, extremely winning), to 1980s Arkansas for a fresh start. Jacob wants to start a farm for Korean fruits and vegetables to offer the tide of fellow immigrants a taste of home. Between the rigours of this new enterprise and their day job sexing chickens, a carer is required for the children, and arrives in the form of their grandmother (the revered Youn Yuh-Jung). Deftly pulling together its multiple threads, this subtle and moving film is one to be cherished.
