Description

Palme d'Or Winner at 2019 Cannes Film Festival and South Korea's Oscar® Entry for Best International Film.

Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Snowpiercer) brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale.

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. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.

By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.


Press

"What keeps you rapt in Parasite is the visual wit — every shot distills the movie’s themes — and the richness of the characters and performances." - Vulture

"Bong Joon-Ho blends a con man story with a tale of suspense, to uproarious and enlightening effect." - Washington Post

"Bong is back and on brilliant form, but he is unmistakably, roaringly furious, and it registers because the target is so deserving, so enormous, so 2019: "Parasite" is a tick fat with the bitter blood of class rage." - Variety
