Bong Joon-ho’s award-winning Parasite is out this weekend on Stan

Parasite

Months ahead of its originally slated streaming release date, four-time Oscar winner Parasite has been bumped up Stan’s schedule and arrives in just a few days. For those who are yet to see what the hype is about, Bong Joon-ho’s history-making tragicomedy will be available on Stan (in all its 4K glory) from Easter Saturday, 11th April.

“Just two months after its historic Best Picture Oscar win, Stan is pleased to be making this acclaimed masterpiece from South Korean director Bong Joon-ho available early to all Stan subscribers this Easter,” said Nick Forward, Chief Content Officer at Stan.

This is obviously a win for those doing their part of help flatten the curve and staying home. Streaming has been our saviour during this whole COVID-19 crisis, and to have a film like Parasite available sooner rather than later is something to look forward to this long weekend.

Full synopsis below.

However, when his son, Ki-woo is recommended by a fellow university student friend for a well-paid tutoring job, hope spawns for a regular income. Carrying the expectations of the family, Ki-woo arrives at the house of Mr. Park, the owner of a global IT firm, where he meets Yeon-kyo, the young lady of the house. The job interview is a success and soon Ki-woo begins work. But very soon, following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait…
