OKJA FEATURE

Meaty, Big & Bouncy – Our Enthusiastic Review of Okja

***

ON OUR SCREENS

***

On June 9, we attended a New York movie premiere for a film that our cousin-in-law produced.

The movie’s called Okja, and we really think you’ll love it… Not because our cousin-in-law produced it… It’s just that it’s a stunner of a fable … where…

  • Girl loves her giant pet pig;
  • Girl loses her giant pet pig (to an evil agro-chemical company);
  • Girl tries to save her giant pet pig (with the help of earnest animal liberators).

Yup, you read that right.

Okja is inventive, fast-paced, and filled with funny moments and loads of feeling.

So what are you waiting for? Get ahead of the curve, and give this one a watch on Netflix. It’s available now, and it’s an experience.

Okja — directed by Snowpiercer’s Bong Joon-ho — stars An Seo Hyun,  Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tilda Swinton (our generation’s Peter Sellers).

Producers of Okja include Brad Pitt (and his Plan B company) as well as Dooho Choi (the cool cousin-in-law).
