Most Important Part Of The Filmmaking Process by Park Chan-wook & Kim Tae-ri of THE HANDMAIDEN Movie — Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures will release the film on Friday, October 21 in New York and Los Angeles with a national rollout to follow.
Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures invite you and a guest to attend a screening of celebrated filmmaker Park Chan-wook’s (OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE, STOKER) ravishing new crime drama, THE HANDMAIDEN. Adapted from Welsh author Sarah Waters’ 2002 Victorian-set lesbian romance novel Fingersmith, Park and co-writer Chung Seo-kyung have transposed Waters’ story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan. THE HANDMAIDEN premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where production designer Ryu Seong-hie was awarded the Vulcain Prize for the Technical Artist, and will also screen as a Special Presentation during the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures will release the film on Friday, October 21 in New York and Los Angeles with a national rollout to follow.
THE HANDMAIDEN is the gripping and sensual tale of two women — a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded Korean 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 her large inheritance. Powered by remarkable performances from Kim Min-hee (RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN) as Lady Hideko, Ha Jung-woo (THE CHASER) as the conman who calls himself the Count and sensational debut actress Kim Tae-ri as the maid Sookee, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with Park Chan-wook’s singular vision and energy to create a mesmerizing experience boasting more tangled plots and bodies than an octopus has tentacles.
