Trailer: Minari set for UK release this April
James R | On 11, Mar 2021
Minari will officially be released in the UK this April, and a new trailer gives us a fresh look at the awards contender.
Starring Steven Yeun (Burning, Sorry To Bother You, The Walking Dead), the film follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amid the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the resilience of family and what really makes a home.
Yeun co-stars with BYuh-jung Youn (Sense8), Han Ye-ri (My Unfamiliar Family), and newcomer Alan S Kim. Directed by Lee Isaac Chung, it has been nominated for six BAFTA Awards, including Best Director, Best Film in a Foreign Language, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Supporting Actor, following its recent wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.
“This warm, moving family drama about making a fresh start in America is as unique as it is universal,” we wrote in our review.
After its UK premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival last week, the film will be released on-demand in the UK on 2nd April. It will then, coronavirus pandemic allowing, be available in drive-in cinemas from 12th April and in cinemas as they reopen.
