Straight from being awarded the Palme d'Or at Cannes, (and Best film at Sydney Film Festival) renowned Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s follow-up to Okja is a thrilling, satirical take on income inequality as told through two families. 

Bong regular Song Kang-ho (The Host, Snowpiercer) plays Ki-taek, whose family of four is close, but hopelessly unemployed. Without prospects, they hustle as best they can to scrape up the money to survive in their subterranean apartment. Hope comes in the form of an unusual offer. The son, Ki-woo, is recommended for a very well-paid tutoring job. Though Ki-woo lacks a university degree, it turns out his sister Ki-jung is a master forger and soon, bearing a fake degree, he is being interviewed at the luxurious home of the very wealthy Park family. Ki-woo gets the job as tutor and quickly realises that the Park family could well prove to be the solution to his family’s money problems.

With every frame beautifully composed, PARASITE vividly contrasts the two families using humour, mystery and a creeping sense of tension. Bong once again skillfully fuses genre elements with social critique in a wildly entertaining, visually extraordinary and intoxicating manner.
