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.

An updated spin on the “family setting out for American Dream” film. Spans the emotional spectrum.

Thoughtfully directed, vividly written, and beautifully acted, it’s a hopeful film, universally appealing despite—or perhaps because of—just how very Korean American it is.

The charming low-key humor and the actors are all winning without being coy or cutesy. Minari is a modest pic but very human and accessible, and quite distinctively so in comparison to the vast majority of high-concept and/or violent movies rolling out today.

Minari is never downbeat, despite the challenges the characters face. Chung’s love for his characters—and the Arkansas farmland where he grew up—always shines through.
