Yes, really. We’ve already re-booked Parasite to return.
This South Korean film is a witty, sharp satire of wealth and privilege. The Kim family has settled into a symbiotic relationship with the rich Park family, who bankrolls the Kims in exchange for tutoring and art therapy services. But a newcomer to the household threatens to upset the balance, and sends the movie pinballing back and forth between comedy of manners and thriller. It’s a brilliantly-made movie that is high on a lot of top-10 lists for 2019. Currently, it’s rated 99% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 95% Audience Score. It also won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards.
Parasite returns Tuesday, February 11, and shows at 7:30 Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday.
