Minari (12A) S

An intimate, wrenching portrait of family and assimilation in 1980s America, Minari follows a Korean-American family who move to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of a better life. David (a scene-stealing Alan Kim), a seven-year-old with a heart murmur, moves with his parents and sister from California to a mobile home in rural Arkansas. There, his father Jacob (Oscar nominated Stephen Yeun) plans to start a farm specialising in Korean vegetables, while his mother Monica (Yeri Han) worries about Jacob’s lofty ambitions. Restrained and richly textured, by turns funny, moving and sharply insightful, it brings its audience deeply into the lives of a family straining to realise their American dream. 

"It is a film in which the details, the child's-eye-view episodes, the calamities, the tenderly remembered touches, all sing together like a choir." ★★★★★ - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
