See it First!
Winner of the Palme d’Or, as well as top Golden Globe nominations including best director, foreign-language film and screenplay. The highly infectious title has also picked up a SAG nomination for best ensemble and was voted best picture by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, keeping the film firmly on the awards map this year.
Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family -his supportive wife, Chung-sook; his cynical twentysomething daughter, Ki-jung, and his college-age son, Ki-woo -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 Ki-woo summons up 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. How does one get rid of a parasite?
Please Note Film is in Korean language with English subtitles.
