The wealthy and glamorous Park family are the epitome of success, while the Kim family are all unemployed. After forging his credentials, the eldest Kim child (Choi Woo-shik) joins the Park household as their tutor, soon followed by his sister (Park So-dam) posing as an art therapist.

Their new hires elevate the Park family even higher on the social ladder, while the Kims are finally on the path to success. It seems to be a perfect arrangement, but how long will it last?

Acclaimed writer-director Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Snowpiercer) delivers a masterpiece with this social satire that defies classification and, earlier this year, became the first ever South Korean film to win the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
