Film Review - Minari


“Minari” initially presents itself as a story of farming and immigration, but writer/director Lee Isaac Chung (“Abigail Harm”) uses such broad topics to get in deep with a Korean family undertaking a massive life change, looking for hope in the middle of rural Arkansas. Chung explores marriage, maturity, family, and childhood, finding his way into the corners of the story, locating rich textures of behavior to study. “Minari” has a lot of heart and a lot of misery, with the production making sure to keep viewers on edge as decent people experience the lows of labor and trust. Chung makes a sensitive picture, and he brings in an excellent cast to realize his screenplay, with the actors mastering the art of subtle reaction to big swings of fate, keeping the feature relatable as Chung finds different ways to punish his characters.
