Friday night at Sea Ranch, Sharon and I watched Parasite on the AppleTV. This is part of our continuing effort to see all of the Oscar nominated films. At the 92nd Academy Awards, the film earned six nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Parasite is a 2019 South Korean dark comedy thriller film directed by Bong Joon-ho. He also wrote the film's story and co-wrote the screenplay with Han Jin-won. The film stars Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-Hyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik, and Park So-dam. It follows the members of a poor household scheming to become employees of a much wealthier family by posing as unrelated, highly qualified individuals.

As Rod said when we were at the Kings Season Ticket Member Party, the plot takes a hard right turn about 2/3s of the way through film. The ending jumps the shark more than a little. Nevertheless, in spite of the subtitles, I enjoyed the film and recommend it. I will be surprised if it wins Best Picture...
