Movie Filmed in Tulsa, Oklahoma Wins at the Golden Globes!
This past Sunday night (02-28-21) the 78th Annual Golden Globes were held in Beverly Hills, CA. at the Beverly Hills Hilton. It was broadcast live on NBC and streamed across the inter-webs. A movie that was filmed in and around Tulsa, Oklahoma "Minari" won the Golden Globe award for Best Picture- Foreign Language. It was written and directed by Lee Issac Chung and stars Steven Yeun, probably best know for his role as Glenn on The Walking Dead, Han Ye-ri, Alan Kim, Noel Kate Cho, Youn Yuh-jung and Will Patton.
Minari tells the story of a Korean family who moves from California to rural Arkansas to start a farm during in the 1980's. Even though the movie is set in Arkansas, it was filmed in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The family works to plant and farm vegetables and produce to sell at a market in Dallas, TX. All kinds of trouble and hardship occur from trying to keep their crops alive, to family issues and other problems. Most of the film is in Korean with English subtitles, but there's also some English as well.
I haven't seen it yet, but after watching the trailer above I'm going to rent it on pay-per-view this weekend. It's available to rent on several streaming services and platforms including: Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu, Fandango, Xbox and Redbox. It's also showing in select theaters, however I don't think it's showing in Lawton. It looks like a good movie and since it was filmed in Oklahoma I have to watch it.
