Netflix certainly isn’t holding back on its big budget films. Tilda Swinton battles a beast in Bong Joon-Ho’s Netflix monster movie, Okja.
Okja will star Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins and Paul Dano. It’s directed by Bong Joon-Ho, the South Korean director who also made the highly acclaimed 2013 sci-fi epic Snowpiecer.
From visionary Director Bong Joon Ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.
