Bong Joon Ho's must-see masterpiece Parasite is presented by Leeds International Film Festival in a series of special year-round previews of outstanding new films. Parasite is released in the UK on 7th February.

From the imagination of Bong Joon Ho (Okja, Snowpiercer, The Host), Parasite finds a family of grifters worming their way into an upper-class family’s perfect world. The Kims are living a marginal life when their son fakes his way into becoming the English tutor for the ultra-wealthy Park family. Soon all four of the family members have roles in their hyper-stylish modern home, having used every dirty trick in the book. But the house hides secrets that are way outside the Kim's scheme.

Already the most successful Palme d’Or winner ever, also picking up the 2020 Best Motion Picture Foreign Language Golden Globe and nominated for 4 BAFTA awards, Parasite is what happens when the have-nots have their day. A deliciously fun poisoned cocktail of dark humour, social satire and perfect set pieces, this gripping thriller is a sensational experience that keeps surprising to its last drop.

'It’s rare for a movie to combine cinematic fireworks and social commentary in quite the thrilling and mischievous way that Korean director Bong Joon-ho manages with Parasite.' - Time Out, review by Dave Calhoun

'The Korean master fuses home-invasion thrills with a searing critique of social inequality in this rip-roaring con-family comedy.' - Sight & Sound, review by Isabel Stevens
