‘Minari’ is an American-Korean drama film directed by Lee Isaac Chung. The film is a partial depiction of Chung’s childhood and his years of growing up amidst an immigrant family from South Korea. The main cast of the film comprises the pivotal Yi family. Steven Yeun plays the role of the husband and father of the family, Jacob Yi, Han Ye-ri is the mother and wife Monica, Alan Kim is Jacob and Monica’s son, David and Youn Yuh-Jung plays the role of the grandmother who comes to help the family, Soon-Ja. The film has received several positive and rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. If you are curious to find out where you can watch the movie, we have the answers for you.
What is Minari About?
The Yi family, headed by the father, Jacob, and the mother, Monica, has been living in the States since the 1980s. They lived in California for some time, working as chicken sexers. The movie follows the family as they move from California to a small town in Arkansas with aspirations of starting a new 50-acre farm. The couple has two children, six-year-old son David and their daughter, Anne.
The aftermath of the shift is not as positive as the family had hoped. With tensions growing between the Yi couple and rising differences between Monica and Jacob’s goals and ambitions, Jacob’s mother, Soon-Ja, comes along to help the couple, especially with the kids. As the film progresses, we see David and Soon-Ja develop an adorable relationship, and the family goes through some serious struggles and hurdles. All in all, ‘Minari’ is a not-so-typical family drama that has been deemed to be one of the most beautiful portrayals of such plots.
