A worldwide critical and box-office smash, winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes and the first ever non-English-language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, this devilishly clever, funny, suspenseful, and incisive black comedy from Korean master Bong Joon-ho has already staked its claim as one of the landmark films of the 21st century. Kim Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho) is the unemployed, good-for-nothing head of a family of grifters — matriarch Chung-sook (Chang Hyae-jin), twentysomething daughter Ki-jung (Park So-dam), and son Ki-woo (Choi Woo-shik) — who live in an overcrowded basement apartment on the wrong side of town. After Ki-woo, through a little luck and some light deception, is hired by the wealthy Park family to tutor their teenage daughter, the other Kims use this “in” to con their own way into positions in the household — but just when they think they’ve got it made, a shocking revelation sets off a chain reaction of fateful (and fatal) events. Blending together comedy, social satire, Hitchcockian suspense, and genuine pathos with seemingly effortless precision, Parasite grabs the viewer and never lets go, right up until its powerful and utterly original conclusion.
