The Handmaiden

Cast: Min-hee Kim, Kim Tae-ri, Jung-woo Ha
Duration: 144 mins
Rating: R18+ - High impact sex scenes
Release Date: 13 October, 2016

Transposing the Victorian setting of the original into a vividly realised and sumptuously shot 1930s Korea, Park delivers a work of razor-sharp humour and unexpected pleasures that will have you guessing until the final piece of clothing drops to the floor.

Sooki, a beautiful young pickpocket, has been dispatched by a master conman known as The Count to become handmaiden to naive Japanese heiress Hideko (Kim Min-hee, also seen in Right Now, Wrong Then). The plan: lure Hideko into falling in love with The Count and as soon as they're married lock her in a mental asylum and claim her vast fortune. However, Hideko is far from what she seems and when handmaiden and mistress fall in love, the stage is set for a dangerous and sexually explicit power play that could leave all three of them unmoored.
