BEST PICTURE WINNER AT THE OSCARS 2020!
Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family occupy themselves by working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition will pave the way for an insidiously subtle scheme, as the son summons the courage to pose as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war.
Bong Joon Ho’s thriller is one of the best reviewed films in decades, winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes, Best Foreign Film at the Golden Globes and historically being the first foreign language film to win Best Picture at the Oscars.
