If there is a movie you see this year, make it Parasite .
Things are becoming Palme d & # 39; Or Winner's release of the state, with the official US trailer revealing a bit more of exactly what the movie is about.
Director Bong Joon-ho is known for weaving up seemingly incompatible tones and genres, and Parasite is no exception to the rule, which blends what can be described as a thriller about two families whose lives crosses each other with a bloodthirsty comedy. A rich, a poor, the families are intertwined when the son of the latter becomes employed in the former. As simple as it may sound like a premise, there is much more to Parasite than meets the eye.
The film now marks the fourth collaboration between Bong and actor Song Kang-ho, who plays the patriarch of the standing Kim family. Jang Hye-jin, Choi Woo-shik and the Park So-dam star as his wife, son and daughter, with Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong and Lee Jung-eun rounding out the cast.
Parasite will hit the Stateside Theater on October 1
