Still image from the film The Handmaiden
From Chan-wook Park, the celebrated director of Oldboy, Lady Vengeance and Stoker, comes a ravishing new crime drama. Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of two women—a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but is secretly plotting with a conman to defraud her of a large inheritance. Inspired by the novel Fingersmith by British author Sarah Waters, The Handmaiden borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with Chan-wook Park’s singular vision to create an unforgettable viewing experience. In Korean and Japanese with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
