“Infused with a wonderful sentimentality, Lee Isaac Chung’s fictionalised account of his rural US childhood explores the growing pains of a family farm.
Steven Yeun gives a piercingly intelligent performance as Jacob, a Korean incomer to the United States in the Reagan era. (…) Jacob has a big dream: he will farm the land here, and get rich growing real Korean vegetables for the many Korean immigrants in the US yearning for a taste of home. But Monica is already disappointed with this new, hard life he has given them. Han plays her brilliantly, as proud and self-contained as an exiled princess.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“Director Lee Isaac Chung’s Oscar-nominated film is a magnificent masterpiece that strikes a universal chord.”
