Bong Joon-ho's Golden Globe-winning Parasite is easily one of the best films of the last decade, and the film's Oscar-nominated script (in English) has now made it online for your reading pleasure!
Parasite centers on 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. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.
Parasite is directed by Bong Joon-ho from a script he co-wrote with by Han Jin-won. Song Kang-ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) stars as Ki-taek alongside Lee Sun-kyun (A Hard Day) and Cho Yeo-jeong (Obsessed) as the Parks, and Choi Woo Shik (Okja), Park So-dam (The Priests) and Chang Hyae Jin (Poetry) as Ki-taek’s son, daughter and wife, respectively.
The highly-acclaimed currently holds a 99% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: "An urgent, brilliantly layered look at timely social themes, Parasite finds writer-director Bong Joon Ho in near-total command of his craft."
The film is now available on Digital platforms, and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on January 28th via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
