'Minari' continues to win awards from various American film critic organizations
Director Lee Isaac Chung’s film “Minari” is continuing to win awards from various American film critic organizations, most recently the Florida Film Critics Circle (FCCC) and Indiana Film Journalists Association (IFJA), according to the organizations on Tuesday.
The FCCC awarded the film first place for best original screenplay and second place for the best foreign-language film.
Just a day after being named best supporting actress of 2020 by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association on Monday, actor Youn Yuh-jung was placed second in the best supporting actress of 2020 category by both the FCCC and the IFJA.
She was previously named best supporting actress by both the Sunset Circle Awards and the Boston Society of Film Critics.
The IFJA also awarded the film second place for the best musical score, which is by composer Emilie Mosseri.
"Minari," which is scheduled to premiere in Korea next year, is based on director Chung’s own life and tells the story of a Korean family who moves to rural Arkansas in the 1980s.
