Okja (2017) Plot & Synopsis
Starring Bill Nighy, Jake Gyllenhaal, Devon Bostick, Tilda Swinton, Kathryn Kirkpatrick
Directed by Joon-ho Bong, Joon Ho Bong, Bong Joon Ho
Joon-ho Bong‘s new film Okja (2017) is about a young girl doing everything she can to stop a huge company from taking her best friend - an incredible animal named Okja. It seems like this film is going to be a movie where the monster is the one who touches our heart and the humans are in fact the monsters. Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Lily Collins star in Okja.
Synopsis: For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja-a massive animal and an even bigger friend-at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija's dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja...while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home. Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises-the bond between man and animal-and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the world that addresses the animal inside us all. Okja is a Plan B Entertainment, Lewis Pictures and Kate Street Picture Company production in association with Netflix.
Tagline: A Netflix Original Film
Storyline: A young girl risks everything to prevent a powerful, multinational company from kidnapping her best friend - a fascinating beast named Okja.
