Back at Sundance in January, Minari won both the Grand Jury Prize for Drama and the Audience Award for the U.S. Dramatic Competition, although not much has been heard about the film since. It stars the talented Steven Yeun in the lead role, who you’ll remember from The Walking Dead, and films like Okja, Sorry to Bother You and Burning.
