Nominated for 10 Oscars, critics are raving about Bong Joon Ho’s pitch-black modern satire about wealth disparity. The film’s setup has a poor family, the Kims, infiltrating the lives of a wealthy family, the Parks, by becoming their new employees.
A symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.
Rotten Tomatoes rates it 99 % fresh: “An urgent, brilliantly layered look at timely social themes.“ Rated R
