We know why you're here. You opened an incognito window and turned the brightness all the way down on your laptop so your coworkers wouldn't be able to tell that you haven't watched Parasite yet. More specifically, you're looking for the film now that it's won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Bong Joon-ho), Best Original Screenplay (Han Jin-won, and Bong again), and Best Foreign Language Film.
We don't blame you. After sweeping the festival circuit, the South Korean film opened in limited theaters across the United States and didn't have a major advertising campaign with billboards and TV spots. It also didn't debut on a streaming platform like Netflix, where it could've shot up to viral viewing numbers the way Marriage Story or The Irishman did. It did, however, deliver a biting social commentary on wealth and class that kept critics and audiences talking.
Fear not, we're here to help you watch this near-perfect movie—especially during quarantine. Finally, you can understand all those Twitter inside jokes about ram-don and Jessica from Chicago.
Stream It on Hulu
Parasite opened in theaters in the States back in October 2019, and after what seemed like an endless wait, the Bong-directed film is finally available to watch on Hulu as of Wednesday, April 8.
