Parasite has become the first non-English speaking film to win 4 Oscars including Best Picture. Parasite is a South Korean pitch-black comedy thriller. We meet the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else and also the Park Family, the picture of aspirational wealth. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kim family sense a golden opportunity. 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.
Packed full of twists, surprising emotional insights, and drastic tonal shifts, Parasite will keep you guessing until the very end.
