First Trailer for Sundance Winner MINARI

Minari film
First look at Lee Isaac Chung's Sundance winning drama.

This year's Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival was awarded to writer/director Lee Isaac Chung's Minari. Set in the 1980s, Minari follows a Korean family who relocate to Arkansas, where they establish a farm. The film stars Steven Yeun, Yeri Han, Alan Kim, Noel Kate Cho, Scott Haze, Yuh-Jung Youn and Will Patton.

A24 have picked up Minari for US distribution, but we're still awaiting news of a UK/ROI release. Meanwhile you can check out the first trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny 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.
