South Korean film in Korean with sub-titles/ English.
Winner of the Oscar for Best Film, making history by being the first film not in English to do so and beating films by Tarantino and Scorsese, and the Palme d’Or at Cannes.
Director Bong Joon-Ho has dazzled audiences with his unique knack for blending genres to tell layered, one-of-a-kind stories.
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 paves 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?
