Parasite (2019, MA)

The poor Kim family infiltrate a wealthy home, their lies and bluffs unsettling the careful façade of the Park household. As secrets are revealed, interlocking plots appear, and the film builds to a frenzy. The most acclaimed film of 2019, Parasite won the 2019 Palme d’Or for best film on its premiere at Cannes before receiving the 2020 Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film, for its stylishly caustic tale of capitalism run amok.
