Minari (2020)

Rotten Tomatoes
Minari (2020): Korean family moves from California to a farm in Arkansas, seeking a better life. Movie avoids the predictable plot devices in favor of letting us watch the struggles of a typical American family. Quiet, touching, life-reaffirming without being over-sentimental. B+

Yesterday was the first day in a year that we went out to see a movie. We attended a weekday matinee. We've both had COVID-19, and we both have had two doses of the Pfizer vaccine, so we felt relatively safe from infection. In fact, the cineplex we went to has 24 screens and there were only 12 cars in the parking lot, including ours. We figure that if you do need to isolate from the public, a weekday movie matinee might be the best place to do it.
