From the visionary director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy and Stoker) comes The Handmaiden, a sumptuous and exhilarating period thriller inspired by Sarah Waters’ best-selling novel 'Fingersmith'.Set during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the 1930s, a young handmaiden named Sookee is hired by Hideko, a reclusive heiress who lives in a sprawling mansion under the watchful eye of her domineering Uncle Kouzuki. But Sookee harbours a secret – she has been recruited by Fujiwara, a scheming con artist posing as a Japanese Count, to trick Hideko into entrusting him with her fortune. However, when Sookee and Hideko begin to develop unexpected emotions for each other, they start putting together a plan of their own...With breathtaking visuals, grandiose set–design and frenzied humour, The Handmaiden is one of the year’s most anticipated films; an opulent and labyrinthine tale of deception, romance and triple–crossing that marks a career high for one of modern cinema’s most thrilling auteurs.In Korean and Japanese with English subtitles.
