A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
"Chung is a patient filmmaker who works in small sequences that accrue imperceptibly into something grander."
"A gentle, truthful and tender story of family filled with kind people trying to love one another the best they can"
- Los Angeles Times
"A raw and vividly remembered story of two simultaneous assimilations; it's the story of a family assimilating into a country, but also the story of a man assimilating into his family"
"Chung transforms the specificity of his upbringing into something warm, tender and universal"
