Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho) is a good-for-nothing, unemployed family man, patriarch of a family of grifters — his wife Chung-sook (Chang Hyae-jin), his clever twenty-something daughter Ki-jung (Park So-dam), and his son Ki-woo (Choi Woo-shik) — who live in an overcrowded, sordid basement. The Parks, on the other hand, live in a fabulous house with their teenage daughter Da-hye and terribly spoiled son Da-song, who has suffered a childhood trauma that occasionally causes seizures and strange behavior. When, due to an unexpected stroke of luck, Ki-woo is hired by the Parks to be the private English tutor of Da-hye, the destinies of the two families cross. Their explosive meeting exposes the merciless evils of class inequalities, culminating in a powerful and utterly original outcome.

An urgent, brilliantly layered look at timely social themes, PARASITE finds writer-director Bong Joon Ho (OKJA, SNOWPIERCER) in near-total command of his craft.  The first foreign film to win Best Picture, PARASITE is not to be missed.
