Minari Rated 12A


Dir. Lee Isaac Chung. USA, 2020. 1h 56m. Korean/subs. Starring Steven Yeun, Han Ye-ri, Youn Yuh-jung, Alan Kim, Will Patton.

A tender and sweeping story about a Korean-American family moving to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American dream. The arrival of eccentric grandmother Soonja (Oscar-winner Yuh-jung Youn) and the hardship of rural life leads to increasing tensions and the looming threat of failure. Lee Isaac Chung's semi-autobiographical account of his upbringing in 80s America is infused with warmth, wit, and intimacy.

Available to stream on-demand, with the UPP getting 50% of your online rental fee. However, if you'd rather wait to see it at the cinema, we are playing Minari at the UPP from Friday 21st May, scroll down for full listings.

'Infused with a wonderful sentimentality, Lee Isaac Chung’s fictionalised account of his rural US childhood explores the growing pains of a family farm' ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

'A beautiful and tender drama that wrestles with America’s folkloric image of itself. Lee Isaac Chung’s film has the gentle, hazy energy of a memory' ★★★★★ Clarisse Loughery, The Independent
