Friday Night at the Movies: Minari
The 2021 Oscar winner for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role and nominee for Best Picture continues Studio Theatre Perth’s screening of Academy Award movies in October.
Yearning to own a small patch of land and be more than a chicken sexer, the ambitious paterfamilias, Jacob Yi, relocates his Korean-American family from California to 1980s rural Arkansas, to start afresh and capture the elusive American Dream. However, new beginnings are always challenging. Amid sincere promises, cultural unease, fleeting hopes, and the ever-present threat of financial disaster, Jacob is convinced that he has found their own slice of Eden in the rich, dark soil of Arkansas. Can grandma Soonja’s humble but resilient minari help the Yi family figure out their place in the world?
Please note that as of October 22nd all patrons in the theatre will be asked to show proof of Covid vaccination (either passport or paper) plus photo ID.
