If there is a movie you see this year, make it Parasite .
Things have galvanized the release of the stateide of Palme d & # 39; s winner, with the official US trailer revealing a little more exactly what the movie is about.
Director Bong Joon-ho is known for interweaving seemingly incompatible tones and genres, and Parasite is no exception to the rule, infusing what might be described as a thriller about two families whose lives fall into the vein of pitch-black comedy. A wealthy, a stupid, families get in touch with each other when the son of the latter works in the former's household. As simple as it may sound as a premise, there is more to Parasite than meets the eye.
The film now marks the fourth collaboration between Bong and actor Song Kang-ho, who plays the patriarch of the innocent Kim family. Jang Hye-jin, Choi Woo-shik, and Park So-dam star as his wife, son, and daughter, with Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, and Lee Jung-eun surrounding the cast.
Parasite hits theaters stateide on October 11.
