This Korean movie is the winner of FOUR 2019 Academy Awards - Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household
"An urgent, brilliantly layered look at timely social themes"
The movie won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film, becoming the first non-English film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The film received nearly unanimous critical acclaim and is considered by many critics to be the best film of 2019 and one of the best of the 2010s.
