Directed by

Bong Joon-ho


New from South Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Snowpiercer) comes this blackly comic satirical thriller that won the 2019 prestigious Palme d’Or. It follows the misfortunes of a downtrodden family, the Kims, who eke out a hand-to-mouth existence in an inner-city basement apartment. When the son, Ki-woo is presented with an opportunity to teach English to the daughter of the wealthy Park family, it begins a path to class warfare. Full of energy, verve and a transgressive visual wit, it is also brimming with rage exposing the inequalities of contemporary capitalism.
