The Host

SUPPORT

When a young girl is snatched away from her father by a giant river monster wreaking havoc on Seoul, her entire family sets out to locate the beast and bring their little girl back home to safety in writer/director Bong Joon-ho’s action-packed, big-budget creature feature.
Hee-bong is a man of modest means who runs a snack bar on the banks of the River Han. Along with his slow-witted eldest son, Gang-du; Gang-du’s young daughter, Hyun-seo; archery champion daughter Nam-joo; and unemployed, slacker son, Nam-il, Hee-Bong has managed to maintain a close relationship with his family despite the hardships that come with being a single father. When a slimy, rampaging, amphibian-like creature erupts from the River Han and throws the city of Seoul into a state of emergency, Gang-du is heartbroken to see his precious little girl scooped up by the scaly creature and spirited away to an unknown destination. This is one family that always sticks together, though, and as the rest of the city denizens scramble to take cover, Hee-bong, Gang-du, Nam-joo, and Nam-il set out to prove that they’re not letting their little girl go without a fight. Combining state-of-the-art special effects, offbeat comedy and genuine emotion, The Host is both a rocking creature-feature thrill ride and a poignant family drama. (Dir. by Bong Joon-ho, 2006, South Korea, in Korean with English subtitles, 120 mins., Rated R)
