While Minari is listed as a United States production, the movie’s dialogue heavily contains Korean, making it eligible to be nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
Last year, Parasite became the first-ever Korean language to win an award at the Golden Globe Awards, winning Best Picture – Foreign Language. The movie was also nominated for two other awards, but did not win them. Bong Joon Ho was nominated for Best Director, and the duo of Bong Joon Ho and Han Jin Won were nominated for Best Screenplay.
Minari tells the story of a Korean family that moves to Arkansas, United States, and the struggles they face as they try to adjust to a brand new language, lifestyle, and world. Watch the trailer for Minari below:
