Have you seen yet the biggest sleeper hit from Korea?
This is your chance to see Parasite which has picked up numerous awards already in Europe and stateside.
If anyone is interested in meeting up at Latinicity for drinks/dinner before the movie let me know. :)

Cannes Palme d’Or winner, Golden Globe winner, front-running Oscar contender and this award season’s international juggernaut hit, PARASITE merges a ripping black comedy with a thriller for one deliciously chilling ride. Family is at the root of this satire that pulls a series of sharp switcheroos to launch unexpectedly poignant social commentary. By a stroke of luck, some glib patter, and devilishly artful ruses, all four members of the unemployed Kim family score jobs in the wealthy Park family’s postmodern mansion, functioning variously as housekeeper, chauffeur, tutor, and art therapist. Director Bong (OKJA, THE HOST) craftily builds sympathy for the decent but gullible Parks, easy marks for the rascally shenanigans of this family of grifters, until the tables are slowly turned for a brutal look at the underclass who are at the mercy of the entitled. In Korean with English subtitles.
