The full trailer has arrived for “Snowpiercer,” “Okja” and “The Host” director Bong Joon-ho’s new dark comedy class satire thriller “Parasite” which opens in South Korea on June 15th. The film won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and reviews paint it as one of the best films of the year.
Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity.
Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide ‘indispensable’ luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household.
When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.
Song Kang-Ho, Lee Sun-Kyun, Cho Yeo-Jeong, Choi Woo-Shik, and Park So-Dam co-star in the film which NEON will release in the United States on October 11th.
