Description

ACADEMY AWARD WINNER FOR BEST MOTION PICTURE, BEST INTERNATIONAL PICTURE and BEST DIRECTOR! Struggling and scheming to make ends meet, the Kim family seizes the opportunity when their young son becomes tutor to the daughter of the well-to-do Park family. As the Kims gradually take over every domestic position in the Park household, the question of who's scamming whom becomes decidedly blurry. Writer/director Bong Joon-Ho's energetic and bloody social farce is both scathingly political and accessibly, wildly funny, delivered by one of 2019’s strongest ensemble casts. The unanimous winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme D'Or, and South Korea’s first-ever six-time Oscar nominee. (2019, in Korean with English subtitles, 132 min, DCP ‘Scope)
