‘Minari’, Lee Isaac Chung’s semi-autobiographical directorial venture (his fourth), is a sweet, gentle film that is also powerfully moving in its narrative. The story follows a Korean-American family as they attempt to assimilate into the American society in the 1980s after purchasing farmland in Arkansas. ‘Minari’ is a resilient Korean herb that grows practically anywhere it’s planted, so the film’s title is a metaphor for the family and it fits rather perfectly. Curious to know more about ‘Minari’ and where to stream it? We’ve got you covered.
What is Minari About?
Jacob (‘The Walking Dead’s’ Steven Yeun), in pursuit of a slice of the American Dream, moves his Korean-American family to Arkansas from California (where he and his wife used to sort baby chicks based on gender). His wife Monica is not very happy with the move. His kids, a stoic daughter and a precocious son, try to adjust to their new life on a farm, living in a trailer home as their father grows Korean vegetables on the 50 acres he’s purchased. When their grandma arrives from Korea to help raise the kids, young David is not completely on board because she doesn’t exactly fit his idea of a grandmother (she doesn’t bake). Forced to share his living space with her, David soon develops a sweet bond with grandma as she becomes his unexpected partner-in-crime.
