The story of a Korean family struggling to stay afloat on a makeshift Arkansas farm is a beautiful and touching bit of subdued and nuanced filmmaking. Writer-director Lee Isaac Chung has crafted a character-driven masterpiece with Steven Yeun and Han Ye-ri leading the way as the superbly well-drawn parents of two young children. It’s quiet and quirky and gentle and warm (except for the few occasions when it’s not) and well worth two hours of your time.

5/5 stars
