The Palm d'Or is the highest award any film can receive at the Cannes Film Festival, and for 2019, the recognition went to director Bong Joon Ho's dark comedy thriller Parasite. If you missed your chance to watch the South Korean award-winning film in mall cinemas, don't worry: Cinema Centenario is screening the film on September 22 to 28.
The Kim family lives in poverty in a basement home and has tried everything to acquire jobs that can sustain their daily needs at the very least. Opportunity strikes when the rich Park family is in need of an English tutor for their daughter. Kim Ki-Woo (Choi Woo Shik) steps in with fake credentials that not only impresses the Park family, but manages to convince them to hire his sister (Park So Dam), mother (Jang Hye Jin), and father (Song Kang Ho). As they all end up working in the beautiful estate, secrets begin to unravel and make them question their social and economic status.
