REEL TALK: MINARI
April 24, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
In order to help keep our community healthy, we won’t be showing movies at the Grange until later this year. Instead, the Home Together Spring Film Series has picked three movies you can watch anytime on your own at home and then join a REEL TALK via Zoom. You can listen to a provocative discussion about the film by a special guest and submit your own questions. We can be Home Together with great movies and lively speakers until we can be together in person in front of the big screen at the Grange again.
MINARI is available to rent on iTunes or Amazon
Nominated for Best Picture – Academy Awards.
This is a heartfelt, powerful, and funny coming-of-age story about a family of Korean immigrants who move to rural Arkansas in the 1980s to find a better life and pursue the American Dream. It’s about assimilating into a new culture while trying to preserve your heritage. It’s about the power of a loving family.
