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.

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

    By Bo323
    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.
  • Wnated to like it more

    By Endlessmovielover
    This was a nice story but the pacing was too slow for me. I could tell the movie had heart and I wated to like it more because of the subject matter, but never fully got there.
  • This a thing now?

    The mandatory Oscar diversity movie? Foh
  • Confusing

    By moshimochi
    Really lacking. It makes me feel emotionally stupid to watch. Maybe I don’t have the right semiotic grasp or maybe I lack the emotional schema for this movie. It feels like sour potato chip grease, something I wish I didn’t spend time on.
  • Slow and Not Much Happens

    By saganfan
    Dumb Korean couple with almost no money but several children move to Arkansas, live in a manufactured home and grow labor intensive speciality vegetables that they run out of water for and have trouble finding buyers for and then granny burns down the vegetable shed and it ends with the dumb Korean family decides to do the same dumb thing all over again; grow a few acres of labor intensive, speciality vegetables, that they have no money to grow and no buyers for. Who would have known that such stupid people exist in Korea also? They must have raised the IQ of both countries when they left Korea and came to America.
  • Rented twice and proud to own...
