THE HANDMAIDEN d. Chan-wook Park, 2016 presented by Screen25 Cinema at Harris Academy South Norwood (01 MAY 19:45):
South x South Seoul season (SxSS):
South Norwood welcomes a season of sumptuous South Korean cinema with Screen25’s inaugural South x South Seoul (SxSS) series! We will play host to four absorbing narratives of class conflict, each complete with thrills, chills and tantalising twists set across two centuries in East Asia.
We’re kicking off South x South Seoul with this intoxicating tale of deception set during the Japanese occupation. Aided by an orphaned pickpocket, a con artist hatches an intricate plan to defraud an heiress of her inheritance, with spine-tingling consequences.
A highly accomplished cultural transposition of Welsh novelist Sarah Waters’ Fingersmith, THE HANDMAIDEN serves up fierce, entrancing drama that builds on and perhaps even surpasses the original work.
