Just in time for summer comes a film that seriously threatens the core component of barbecues, baseball games and block parties."Okja" also has too much Tilda Swinton, a curious Jake Gyllenhaal and some weird musical choices but Bong must be congratulated for forcing us to see what's for dinner – even if his message is as heavy-handed as a public service announcement for veganism.Ahn Seo-hyun plays Mija as a self-possessed young woman with undeterred, dogged love and the resourcefulness of Lara Croft.The early part of the film spends time with these two as they gambol through nature, hugging and working together to gather food. There's also an unhinged Gyllenhaal, who plays a Steve Irwin-like wildlife expert who has sold his soul to the evil corporation.A second serving of the hammy Swinton seems too much.
