Minari (Netflix disc):

A Korean family starts a farm in 1980s Arkansas.

A slow narrative, but deliberate. A slice of life movie, dealing with the difficulties of a major lifestyle change. It was a bit different than I expected, the culture shock/changes were more subtle in the delivery. I was expecting more of a pitchfork nation approach due to the family being Korean, and it was far from that. The major conflicts were internal to the family, not from outsiders.

It’s a solid watch, but I think you have to be in the mood to watch a movie such as this one.
