    Trailer for the Sundance US Dramatic Audience & Dramatic Grand Jury Award winner is here. I don’t see many people predicting it for the Oscars. It seems indie but I think it could also be a warm crowdpleaser while appealing to critics.

    Some more info

    It’s sitting at 88% in Metacritic and 100% on RT with average score 9+.

    Distributor is A24, and this is their big push this calendar year.

    This is Director Lee Isaac Chung’s first high-profile film after his debut Munyurangabo, which Roger Ebert deemed it a masterpiece. https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/munyurangabo-2009

    Now that I look at it, Sundance top prize winners do little impact on Oscars. Most recent winners that made a splash were Whiplash (2014) and Precious (2009).

    I think that Minari is the only film that A24 will campaign hard this year (there’s On The Rocks, but I can’t see it as a great contender while they have an award winner film) . Looking at the reviews, I think it’s probable that we’re going to see this nominated for the Oscar. The screenplay is the most likely to be nominated while I can see it as a Best Picture contender as we all know that the Academy seems to be more open to diversity.

    As deserving as he may be for this film, I can’t help but think he should be nominated for this performance as a way to make up for his snub for Burning.

    Wow. What a beautifully poignant film.

    It definitely deserves a SAG ensemble nomination.

    Steven Yeun, Han Ye-ri, & Youn Yuh-jung are all worthy of recognition. Also, Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, & Cinematography.

    Minari is probably my favorite film of 2020 so far.

    Mannnnn this is easily my favorite film of 2020 so far. Such a beautiful gut wrenching story. In terms of Oscar chances, I really want this film to make it in Bp and I can see it happening unless it turns out to be a ‘The Farewell’ 2.0. Yeun was terrific, but I don’t see him happening in lead. I think he would have a way better shot in supporting. OMG Yuh-Jung Youn (the grandma) on the other hand DESERVES a best supporting actress nom for sure, she was my standout. Everybody else in this film was just so terrific. I know this film will stay in my top 3 throughout the end of the year and I won’t be surprised if it stays number 1 for me.

    A24’s going to release this in theaters. Limited release in NY & CA on Dec 11, followed by a wider release on Feb 12.

    My reactions are mixed. Maybe they thought the movie would appeal more to the theatrical audience than the general streaming audience. I wonder what this’ll mean for its Oscar chances.

    I admire A24’s commitment to theatrical, but this isn’t gonna work. The NY-LA qualifying run is hindered by the fact that NYC theaters aren’t open, and at this point, aren’t going to reopen soon. The pandemic is picking up again throughout the country, so unless you have a PVOD deal like Universal-AMC, there is little chance at getting a profit off, let alone relying on the fact that theaters will still be allowed to be open or major chains don’t shut them down in the next month or so. They are then going for the expansion in February, hoping I guess that things with the pandemic will have slowed down, but that’s a pretty risky assumption.

    I watched this movie as part of a virtual festival, and it works well at home, and I suspect that is how the majority of critics and voters are going to see it anyway, but given how they’ve shuffled everything off their schedule for this week and haven’t sold off or sent to PVOD any of their scheduled 2020 titles, they seem to be making a point with this decision. It could earn them some goodwill, but it could also be seen as a reckless business decision.
