Parasite (기생충) voted Best Picture by members of Row House Film Club.

The 2019 Bong Joon-ho film Parasite (기생충) was voted Best Picture by over 400 members of the Row House Film Club, the theater announced. From a February 2 press release:
“Pittsburghers are excited to have their voices heard in choosing the best films of the year. Parasite felt so universal, its exciting to see a film from South Korea translate so well to the US. Bong Joon-ho is a brilliant filmmaker, and Pittsburghers overwhelmingly agreed that Parasite was the best film of the year," says Film Club manager Delena Obermaier.
Parasite is up for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards on February 9, and is playing at the Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville through February 6.
