Overview

This is what we wrote about PARASITE when we first showed it a few months ago… and now, it’s basically come true: “Sure, winning the Cannes Palme d’Or in May does not mean you land a Best Picture nomination from the Oscars in January. But PARASITE will go all the way to a likely seven nominations, including Best Picture: Best International Feature Film, Director, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Production Design and maybe, Editing. That nomination would portend a potential Best Picture winner. “Parasite” could also win because it’s a zeitgeist hit. It shows us who we are, and how we exist on this planet today”—Anne Thompson, IndieWire. It did indeed get every one of those nominations except cinematography! Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. R. In Korean with English subtitles. 136 Min.
