Winner of the Palme d’or at the 2019 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 rollercoaster ride with a pleasingly twisty narrative; a compelling and expertly-crafted gem.
