Minari ★★★★

The score, the cinematography, all the lush nature shots and green space surround the framework of this family whose struggles and daily lives are so compelling we can't help but be drawn in and root for them, for everything to go right, for their risks to yield reward. The intimacy here, particularly in the small moments filled with mischief and mundanity hold together the bigger moments and allow them to strike home even more deftly. The slow build-ups, the falling cascade of dominos, the range of emotions both viewed and commiserated.

I love the Yi family and want nothing but the best for them.
