Oh my...I don’t even know where to begin. Recently we watched Minari and I cried multiple times. Set in 1980, (which is also when my parents and I immigrated to Utah) it’s a tender and heartbreaking story of a Korean American family who move to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American dream. A story of a family trying to fit in and trying to create a better life. I felt like I was seeing my own parents and my Grandma who came to stay with us on screen. I can’t wait to watch it again with my parents.
Fun fact: the director Lee Isaac Chung did his undergrad at Yale and went to film school at University of Utah.
