Netflix’s OKJA arrives in theaters for an exclusive theatrical engagement at the Digital Gym Cinema. In this cautionary tale starring Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Steven Yeun, a gentle giant and the girl who raised her are caught in the crossfire between animal activism, corporate greed and scientific ethics.

 

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija 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 family-owned, multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where an image-obsessed and self-promoting CEO has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission.

 

Critic Quotes:

“It’s a sublime tale of the value of humanity, and the horrors we often have to suffer through to hold on to that.” – The Atlantic

“Okja moves seamlessly between fairy tale, action caper and crime drama.” – Toronto Sun

“One of Okja’s great charms lies in its director’s ability to vary tone, pacing, and style between scenes without losing the viewer’s patience and sympathy.” – Slate

“No one, but no one, makes movies like Bong, a South Korean master who combines baroque concepts, epic visuals, international casts, and a sense of humor that can make you laugh out loud in the middle of the darkest doings.” – Boston Globe
