MINARI – PREVIEW SCREENING – Friday 12
Having received a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes – this is one that we at Dendy recommend!
A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm searching for their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the family’s undeniable resilience and what really makes a home. Tickets include a complimentary drink on arrival. Book here.
