Synopsis

The American Dream and its wavering promise is experienced through the perspective of a Korean family of four who set up a farm in Arkansas. Set in the 1980s, the film follows the struggles of parents Monica and Jacob as they face the challenges of providing for their family in a world that is hostile to immigrants alongside their disintegrating marriage. Their struggles are further reflected in the youngest in the family, the curious David, who tries to make sense of his Korean-American identity when their eccentric grandmother Soon-ja comes to live with them. Loosely based on director Lee Isaac Chung’s childhood, Minari is an intimate and intricate look at family, change and American society that explores the unique perspective of growing up as a first-generation immigrant.
