Minari (2020)

Yearning to own a small patch of land and be more than a chicken sexer,  the ambitious paterfamilias, Jacob Yi, relocates his Korean-American  family: sceptical wife, Monica, and their children, David and Anne, from  California to 1980s rural Arkansas, to start afresh and capture the  elusive American Dream. However, new beginnings are always challenging,  and to find out what is best for the family, let alone start a 50-acre  farm to grow and sell Korean fruits and vegetables, is easier said than  done. But, amid sincere promises, cultural unease, fleeting hopes, and  the ever-present threat of financial disaster, Jacob is convinced that  he has found their own slice of Eden in the rich, dark soil of Arkansas.  Can grandma Soonja's humble but resilient minari help the Yi family  figure out their place in the world?
