“As an escalating freak show of tension, surprise and class rage”

Los Angeles Times

From the director of Okja and The Host comes the black comedy thriller Parasite.

Ki-taek’s family of four is close, but hopelessly unemployed. Without prospects, they hustle to make ends meet, and one hustle ends with son Ki-woo employed as a tutor in the luxurious home of the very wealthy Park family.

Ki-woo quickly realises that the Park family could well prove to be the solution to his family’s money problems.

With every frame beautifully composed, and social satire saturating horror genre play precision, Parasite is the work of a director at the top of his game.
