A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream.
The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
★★★★½ - Rolling Stone
"It's a beautiful example of cinema à clef, done with little blustery sentimentality and a surfeit of grace notes."
★★★★ - Observer
"One of the most profound and honest cinematic depictions of what it means to be American, not just this year, but in recent memory."
★★★★ - Guardian
"Minari offers an encouraging and engaging view of the immigrant experience while also recognising the hardships that go alongside."
★★★★★ - Deadline Hollywood Daily
A warm and wonderful story of a Korean-American family starting a new life on a farm in Arkansas was rightfully a big winner at Sundance and could follow Parasite to the Oscar podium
