Two films nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards will show at Reg Lenna Center for The Arts.

Minari screens Wednesday, April 21, at 7 p.m. Promising Young Woman screens Friday, April 23, at 7 p.m. Each is nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

A tender and sweeping story, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home. Minari is rated PG-13 and is 116 minutes long. In addition to Best Picture it is nominated for Best Director – Lee Isaac, Best Actor – Steven Yeun, Best Supporting Actress – Youn Yuh-jung, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Best Original Score

Best Director nominee Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) helms Promising Young Woman. Everyone said Cassie was a promising young woman until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story. Promising Young Woman is rated R and is 114 minutes long. In addition to Best Picture and Best Director, it is nominated for Best Actress – Carey Mulligan, Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing.
