You may have been hearing about a little thriller film titled ‘Parasite‘ the past few weeks, and for good reason. The movie took home the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival and has obviously been receiving rave reviews from critics.
This film comes from the extremely talented filmmaker, Bong Joon-ho. He’s the man responsible for Snowpiercer and Okja.
Check out the official synopsis for ‘Parasite’ below…
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.
The movie is expected to hit theaters on October 11, 2019.
