NATIONAL LOTTERY CINEMA DAY FILM. MINARI. 19.30. SUNDAY 20th JUNE.

A 2020 award winning film from Director Lee Isaac Chung, which also went to achieve another 107 awards and hundreds of nominations.

Yearning to own a small patch of land and be more than a chicken sexer, the ambitious paterfamilias, Jacob Yi, relocates his Korean-American family: sceptical wife, Monica, and their children, David and Anne, from California to 1980s rural Arkansas, to start afresh and capture the elusive American Dream. However, new beginnings are always challenging, and to find out what is best for the family, let alone start a 50-acre farm to grow and sell Korean fruits and vegetables, is easier said than done. But, amid sincere promises, cultural unease, fleeting hopes, and the ever-present threat of financial disaster, Jacob is convinced that he has found their own slice of Eden in the rich, dark soil of Arkansas. Can grandma Soon-ja’s humble but resilient Minari help the Yi family figure out their place in the world?
