Overview

The Academy Award-winning Minari is a film of great personal significance to writer-director Lee Isaac Chung, who based the film on his own childhood experiences. Following his own kind of American Dream, Jacob Yi (Steven Yeun, Burning) moves his young family from California to rural 1980s Arkansas, with visions of starting a prosperous farm growing Korean vegetables. This new life is a constant source of concern for his wife Monica (Yeri Han), who frets over their financial prospects, and about being too far from a hospital in case their young son David’s (Alan S. Kim) heart condition flares up. Hope arrives from Seoul in the form of grandmother Soon-ja (Yuh-jung Youn, who won Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance), whose wicked sense of humour and loving nature foster a sense of home. With the minari seeds she plants along the riverbed, the family begin to put down roots.
