The Oracle fights over Best Picture: Parasite

With the Academy Awards, or Oscars, around the corner, the social thriller “Parasite,” the highest-nominated film for the Oscars’ Best Picture, deserves to win the award. The international film features a Korean cast, director, dialogue and filming location.

“Parasite” centers around the poor Kim family living in a small basement apartment in Korea, and the wealthy Park family, who live in a mansion built by a heroic Korean architect. The Kim family, one by one, find jobs working for the Parks through deception, slowly getting their fortune. Later on, tensions begin to rise between the families, starting with little annoyances. One rainy night secrets within the Park household are uncovered, and tensions rise. “Parasite” was able to succeed despite having a budget of just $11 million. It has grossed over$163 million around the world and is still being shown in theatres around the world. This film has also been nominated for Best International Feature Film, and is a frontrunner to win the award.
