‘Minari is the movie we need right now.’ – LA Times
The winner of multiple awards since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival, Lee Isaac Chung's MINARI is a heartfelt drama of one family's experience after moving from Los Angeles to Arkansas to start a farm in the early 1980s.
Steven Yeun (Burning, Okja) and Yeri Han star as Jacob and Monica, parents to young David (Alan S. Kim) and Anne (Noel Cho), and recent arrivals from South Korea. Staking their life savings on an expansive farm, Jacob has a dream to grow Korean vegetables for the thousands of immigrants arriving in the United States every year. Hiring a Korean War vet to help prepare the land (Will Patton in career-best form) while working part time for a chicken hatchery, the family's fragile dynamic is upended by the arrival of Monica's headstrong mother Soonja (Yuh-jung Kim).
Beautifully photographed and featuring outstanding performances from the entire ensemble, MINARI is already considered a frontrunner in the 2020 awards season with Yeun anticipated to become the first Asian Best Actor nominee.
