“Parasite” made history during the 2020 Oscars, winning four awards and becoming the first non-English-language film to win best picture, the Academy’s highest honor. This acclaimed playful yet dark satire thriller takes a microscope to two families on opposite ends of the social class spectrum in urban South Korea. Their paths become intertwined when Kim Ki-woo begins tutoring English to the daughter of the wealthy Park family.
