After winning the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Parasite’ has become an award season darling. The Parasite script – which is a twisty drama about class divide has been in consideration for the Best Original Screenplay.
Funny, engaging and smart are only a few adjectives that define the Parasite script. The crisp writing is constantly bewildering and surprising. There’s not a single minute wasted in unnecessary exposition. The metaphors are occasionally on the face but the narrative never loses its urgency and temperament.
A clear frontrunner for this year’s International Feature Oscar, the Parasite script is also being pushed up by film pundits. They are considering that Parasite might end up taking away it’s a fair share of surprise wins. Bong Joon-ho who in an interview describes Parasite as a tragicomedy that depicts the humor, horror, and sadness that arise when you want to live a prosperous life together, has penned the screenplay with co-writer Jin Won Han.
