Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the new film from Bong Joon-ho (The HostOkja) is a darkly comic thriller about a struggling family that hits upon a most unusual scheme for pulling themselves out of poverty: systematically conning their way into the household of a wealthy family. As the symbiotic relationship between the two clans grows increasingly precarious, this diabolical satire spins off into ever-more surprising, sinister realms. Masterfully navigating each hairpin twist and turn, Bong Joon-ho delivers a precision-crafted genre-bender that’s as compulsively entertaining as it is insightful about the tensions of life under late capitalism
