"Gentle as the stream that flows through the Yi’s property, and yet powerful enough to reverberate for generations to come, [director Lee Isaac] Chung’s loving — and immensely lovable — immigrant drama interrogates the American Dream with the hard-edged hope of a family that needs to believe in something before they lose all faith in each other." —David Ehrlich, IndieWire
A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an 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. Winner of the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and selected as one of the top ten films of the year by both the American Film Institute and National Board of Review.
Minari is nominated for 6 Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Original Score.
