A Korean American family moves to an Arkansas farm in search of its own American dream. Amidst the challenges of this new life in the strange and rugged Ozarks, they discover the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.

What makes this more than just another formulaic feelgood film is the grit with which Chung
evokes the hardscrabble lives of his characters, balancing the dreamier elements of the drama
with a naturalism that keeps it rooted in reality
.” – Mark Kermode, The Observer


Minari is a story of the American Dream. But Chung’s brilliance is in how he adds depth and
complexity to those foundational ideas – it’s in the spaces in between that we find love, loss, hope,
and regret.
” – Clarisse Loughrey. The Independent
