Parasite (Monday Night Cinema)
Mon 7 Dec, 3pm & 8pm
Director: Bong Joon-ho
Bong Joon-ho's multi award-winning black comedy follows two families - one wealthy, one less so - and the increasingly complex ways in which their lives intertwine.
Ki-taek is the head of a family of tricksters, who live in a run-down basement flat. By chance, son Ki-woo is recommended to provide private English lessons to the teenage daughter of the wealthy Park household. It isn’t long before Ki-woo has devised a plan to use this opportunity to his family’s best advantage…
Director Bong Joon-ho has described his film as “a comedy without clowns and a tragedy without villains” - to reveal anything more would do the viewer a disservice.
