SM Cinema exclusively brings Parasite—winner of the 2019 Palme d’Or, the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival—to Philippine cinemas nationwide.
Easily one of the most recognizable modern-day directors, Bong Joon-ho is known for genre-bending films such as The Host, Mother and Snowpiercer. His latest film Parasite is a black comedy/drama in the mold of a home invasion thriller that offers the audience a darkly funny yet ultimately unsettling glimpse into the lives of two families divided by class.
Parasite follows the Kim family who lives in a sub-basement apartment in a low-income area of Seoul. Ki-Woo, the Kims’ eldest son, with the help of his sister Ki-Jung, forges a fake diploma and gets the opportunity to work at the hilltop mansion of the very wealthy Park family. However, greed threatens the security of his job, as well as the safety of his own family and the people around him.
Parasite stars Song Kang-Ho as Ki taek, Jang Hye-Jin as Choong-Sook, Choi Woo-Sik as Ki-Woo and Park So-Dam as Ki-Jung.
Catch Parasite starting Aug. 14, only at SM Cinema branches nationwide. Book your tickets through the website, www.smcinema.com or download the SM Cinema mobile app.
