The latest film to hit Curzon’s Home Cinema service is bound to become one of the all-time greats – the film of 2019, Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite. Winner of four Academy Awards, including being the first non-English language film to win Best Picture, the plot follows the life of the Kim family, living in poverty in South Korea. When their son Ki-woo finds an opportunity to work for a wealthy household, he seizes his chance – and the less said after that, the better. Truly, this is one of those films where it’s best go into with a blank slate. Click here to rent it with Curzon.

The exhibition is more relevant than ever in 2020, and so the Museum have opened it up as a virtual exhibition – click here to check it out.
