Bong Joon-ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale featuring a magnificent original score composed by Jung Jae-il.
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.
Parasite made it’s critically acclaimed debut at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, becoming the first-ever Korean film to win the festival’s prestigious Palme d’Or Award and has gone on to become one of the most celebrated films of the year, winning 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.
