Winner of the 2019 Cannes Palme d’Or, Bong Joon Ho’s newest film is a darkly comedic, genre tale of class struggle that has drawn comparisons to Jordan Peele’s Us. Ki-taek’s family is close, but fully unemployed, with a bleak future ahead of them. Ki-woo, Ki-taek’s son, is recommended for a well-paid tutoring job, spawning the promise of a regular income. Carrying the expectations of all his family, Ki-woo heads to the Park family home for an interview. Arriving at the house of Mr. Park, the owner of a global IT firm, Ki-woo meets Yeon-kyo, the beautiful young woman of the house. Following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait. In Korean with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
