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.
Child actor Alan Kim will make you fall in love with his honesty. Steven Yeun is compelling as the frustrated but hopeful father and veteran actress Yuh-Jung Youn is terrific as the feisty and funny matriarch. Minari is an American Dream story but with many layers under the surface which Chung handles with a deft naturalism and real affection for his characters. A moving, feelgood treat that will linger long after the credits roll.
