Minari is a movie about a family from South Korea trying to fulfill the American Dream. The story is not as original as I would have liked, but the cast makes the movie. The actors portray stress, love, hate, and suffering incredibly well from the little kids to the old grandma. The movie was not pretty, but neither is the American Dream, which is probably the point the director is trying to make.

A wholly humanistic story with all the emaotions plus wonderfully natural comedic moments. Young Alan Kim was fantastic!

Minari is a deeply personal film, and quality that's evident in writer-director Lee Isaac Chung's reminiscence about his childhood. Focusing on a Korean immigrant family, the universal themes come through loud, clear and ultimately with considerable power, even if the movie's languid pace works against it.

Chung is a patient filmmaker who works in small sequences that accrue imperceptibly into something grander.

The film’s orderliness of plot somewhat undermines the sense that the family at its center is steeped in a truly messy situation.
