The critically acclaimed film Minari is the surprise darling of the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations.
On Thursday, the movie was nominated for outstanding ensemble in a motion picture, plus actors Steven Yeun and Youn Yuh-jung were both named in the acting categories.
Minari stars Yeun and Yeri Han as Korean-American immigrants who migrate to a farm in Arkansas in pursuit of the American dream. Produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment and distributed by A24, the movie won the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury and Audience prizes last year and has since amassed a following of critics and stars who continue to sing it praises.
The drama also stars Alan Kim, Noel Kate Cho, Scott Haze and Will Patton. It was executive produced by Yeun, Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner, and will be out on Feb. 12.
