    An intimate and revealing look at small-town America. Endearing, absurd, loving, and frightening all at once. A quirky slow burn that will leave you memorized and in deep thought about the generational patterns in this country.

    Perfectly casted and not overly-acted, Minari examines the sacrifices that need to be made when integrating into a new country without falling into the more obvious trappings that similar films constantly fall into it. Regardless of race, this film is about the disjointedness and imperfections that all families have, and the beautiful connections and…
