Screenplay Sunday – Parasite

Over the years I have found myself collecting and saving Screenplays from some of my favourite films. I have therefore decided to start a new feature Screenplay Sunday where I will be posting a film screenplay each week!

I thought what better way to start it than with Parasite?

They are struggling to survive and don’t really have much ambition between them. Even though Ki-woo and Ki-Jung have impressive skills. When an opportunity arrises to work for the wealthy Park family a plan is put in place.
