The Handmaiden (18)

film
Wednesday 16 August @ 7.30PM
Thursday 17 August @ 7.30pm
From Park Chan-wook, the celebrated director of Oldboy, Lady Vengeance and STOKER, comes a ravishing new crime drama inspired by the novel Fingersmith by British author Sarah Waters.

Having transposed the story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan, Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a conman's plot to defraud her of her large inheritance.

"The Handmaiden is a playfully provocative tale of seduction, desire and deceit. Slyly undermining stereotypes of fall guys and femmes fatales Park’s film takes great delight in wrong-footing its audience, peeling away layers of mesmerising misdirection with delicious cinematic sleight of hand"
Guardian ★★★★★

“The Handmaiden is at once a superlative thriller and a deeply erotic character study, but it’s the intelligence, mordant wit and depth of characterisation that are the real turn-ons.”
Empire ★★★★★
