Act like you own the place.

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. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem.

Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family—his supportive wife, Chung-soo,; his cynical twentysomething daughter, Ki-jung, and his college-age son, Ki-woo—occupy themselves by working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition paves the way for an insidiously subtle scheme as Ki-woo summons up the courage to pose as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war. How does one get rid of a parasite?
