Jan 21 - 23, 5:15 & 8:00
Winner of the best Foreign Film at the Golden Globes, this is an original and complex satirical black comedy that goes darkly, thrillingly sinister from Korean filmmaker Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer). The son of the poor Kim family is offered a job tutoring English to the rich Park family’s daughter. Using dubious pretense and fake papers, he insinuates himself, his sister and then his parents into this new and improved life, until all his family is working together, unbeknownst to their employer. Then a savage interloper threatens their comfortable existance and an underhanded battle for dominance ensues.
Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Film.
