A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an 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.




  • Confusing

    By moshimochi
    Really lacking. It makes me feel emotionally stupid to watch. Maybe I don’t have the right semiotic grasp or maybe I lack the emotional schema for this movie. It feels like sour potato chip grease, something I wish I didn’t spend time on.
  • Slow and Not Much Happens

    By saganfan
    Dumb Korean couple with almost no money but several children move to Arkansas, live in a manufactured home and grow labor intensive speciality vegetables that they run out of water for and have trouble finding buyers for and then granny burns down the vegetable shed and it ends with the dumb Korean family decides to do the same dumb thing all over again; grow a few acres of labor intensive, speciality vegetables, that they have no money to grow and no buyers for. Who would have known that such stupid people exist in Korea also? They must have raised the IQ of both countries when they left Korea and came to America.

  • Disconnected

    I really wanted to like this movie and the story, characters and setting all seemed promising but it resolves itself a little too little and a little too late. Firstly, none of these people seem to want to be together or even like each other. The wife is a complete pill and the husband doesn’t really listen. They seem completely mismatched and we rarely see any kind of affection between the two, so, who, exactly, are we rooting for? Secondly, it’s not clear whose point of view is being told. The story jumps from one character to another and one scene to another, almost randomly, and very little happens, especially for the first 2/3’s of the film. Even “slow” films have a continuous story unfolding and the characters arc along the way. Instead, in this story, everything happens at the end and the characters’ arcs are brought upon by an external event rather than an internal one. The performances are fine but there is no chemistry between any of these characters It’s almost as if these are separate people telling separate stories. Again, really wanted to like this film but I think it’s overhyped and way overrated.
  • Funny heart warming, a perfect covid antidote

    I love this movie. The family is endearing, the characters struggle to find their normal in a foreign area. It’s the dream of many immigrants to make it. To provide their family and this movie speaks to me and my family’s history. You must watch this movie. Totally worth it.
  • Enjoyed it regardless of subtitles

    By monkeydogentertainment
    Not sure what to expect, surprisingly it didn’t take a lot of effort to watch this movie in subtitles.
  • $20 to rent. I’ll wait to buy.

    The trailer looks great and I’d love to see this movie but I will not pay $20 to rent it when it’ll be $20 to buy it in a few weeks - I know the pandemic is rough for the movie industry but if you let me buy it, I’m in otherwise I’ll wait.
