Yeri Han stars in Minari

Yeri Han makes her American debut in cinema. And it’s a good one.

During this awards season, Minari is all the buzz with the drama about an Asian family struggling in the American Midwest.

For Yeri Han, she already garnered nominations from the Film Independent Spirit Awards for Best Supporting Female and Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

She stars alongside Steven Yeun, as his wife who must endure his American dream. The rest of the cast includes Yuh-jung Youn, Alan Kim, Noel Cho, and Will Patton. Lee Isaac Chung wrote and directed the movie.

Here’s the synopsis:

A tender and sweeping story about what roots us. Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
