A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.


  • No Finish

    I was rooting for this family. Understood the struggle they were dealing with. But the ending frankly sucked! Meaning, you didn’t close it out clean. Left story lines unresolved, no conclusion. Vague and obscure ending. It was like a dump and run. Disappointing! Never fails to astound me how people’s standards for a good story have been so corrupted.

    Dreadfully boring and no idea what the point was. Was this supposed to be a rip off of The Good Earth? At least they reversed the typical racist stereotypes to the “normal” Asian and the ridiculous caricature white Americans for a change of pace. Don't know why they didn’t want to have any African Americans in the movie.
  • Reminded me of my family story

    By pidge2k
    This movie is somewhat a love letter to immigrant families. My parents immigrated to the USA when I was a baby so even though I am not Korean, some of the struggles the family faces in this movie are very similar to my own. Parents arguments due to the financial struggles, culturally trying to fit in, trying to set up new roots, the pull from two different cultures growing up and more. I don’t want to spoil the movie too much but I can’t recommend this movie enough. Go watch it.
  • Brilliant!

    This film was a touching story about those chasing the "American Dream". Although it seemed slightly sugarcoated, it had great moments and I would watch this movie again and again.
  • Pretty good, not great

    Nice little story, very pensive and meditative lingering camera shots. However, about half way through it starts to run out of steam, with the ending being odd and vague. The young boy does and excellent acting job, and the grandmother adds an authentic feel to things.

    A sad story about an immigrant family...
  • Not good

    I was hoping to see a movie of a Korean family struggling to find peace and happiness in their new American homeland. It seemed to be the longest movie I ever watched. Painful.
  • A lot of malcontents on here

    By Fletch F. Fletch
    So far the majority of complaints on here appear to be “this isn’t like another movie I liked so I don’t like this one”, variations of racist complaining and of course the cheapskates that don’t understand that when a movie rents for $20 it’s because it’s currently playing at the movie theaters. Probably best for you to watch the movie understanding there are subtitles and there isn’t going to be bald guys in sleeveless t-shirts racing through the harvest while being chased by helicopters. With that expectation you will be better prepared to decide whether or not this is a movie you should watch or avoid. If a slice of life of a multi generational Asian family struggling to follow their dreams with wisdom and humor and perseverance is some thing you’re interested in, perhaps give it a try.
  • Painfully slow and awkward

    Had high hopes but was just disappointed. Save your money and don’t waste the .99 cents when offered by Apple.
  • Not a good movie.

    By Ty Price
    It’s unbelievable that anyone gave this more than one star. It could’ve been a great movie but they didn’t finish it. It’s like half a movie but drawn out.
