SATURDAY JULY 25 Channel 039

The knockout film of 2019 – winner of 4 Oscars including Best Film and Best Director, the first foreign film to ever win the award plus winner of countless other awards worldwide.  Parasite tells the story of two very different families - The Kims – a poor family living in squalor.  And The Parks - the perfect picture of modern wealth. Be it chance or fate, these two families are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide ‘indispensable’ luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. A masterpiece of social commentary and black comedy all rolled into one.  Starring Kang-ho Song, Sun-kyun Lee, Yeo-jeong Jo, Woo-sik Choi. Directed by Academy Award winner Bong Joon-Ho.
