A Korean American family moves to an Arkansas farm in search of its own American dream. Amidst the challenges of this new life in the strange and rugged Ozarks, they discover the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home
Minari is one of the most beautiful films of the past year and the heartwarming film we need right now about a family chasing the American Dream. The cinematography in Minari should be able to compete Nomadland for the Oscar.
Steven Yeun, showed range during his screen time on Okja and known as the fan favorite on The Walking Dead. What he does here is breathtaking and something I never expected to see from him on screen. Yes he’s been in fun flicks but never commanded the screen like he does here.
This is going to be another A24 Oscar darling to be a keen to Lady Bird. I hope the Oscars recognizes this more than a best foreign film like they did with Parasite. Will Patton in this also gives his best performance in decades.
Lee Isaac Chung will mesmerize you with his visual directing abilities in Minari. This is simply one of the most beautiful movies of the year and should be on everyone’s radar.
Overall grade: 5/5 stars
