Parasite is about a down-on-it’s-luck family who insinuates itself, one member at a time, into the life of an affluent young family in a posh neighborhood in Korea. It seems all well and good until a secret is uncovered within the posh house that turns everything, well, inside out.
Parasite, directed by Bong Joon-ho (Okja) has earned more than $167 million worldwide and just made history this week by becoming the first foreign language film to win the Best Picture Oscar.
