Winner of the Palme d’Or at 2019’s Cannes Film Festival, this brilliant black comedy from Bong Joon-ho (Okja, Snowpiercer) follows the Kim family as they struggle to survive on the breadline. When a friend offers Kim Ki-Woo the chance of a tutoring job at the lavish home of the Park family Ki-Woo’s luck starts to change, and soon his sister, mother and father are also ingratiating themselves into the glamorous lives of their affluent employers. Parasite is both a piercing commentary on inequality and a twisty narrative rollercoaster ride; you’ll be gripped throughout this compelling and expertly-crafted gem.
