Time & Tickets

With THE HANDMAIDEN, Park Chan-wook (OLDBOY) transplants Sarah Waters’ Victorian England-set bestseller FINGERSMITH to Japanese-occupied Korea in the 1930s. In Park’s adaptation, a girl is hired as a handmaiden to Lady Hideko, a Japanese heiress who lives a secluded life on an estate with her domineering uncle. But the maid has a secret. She and a swindler who poses as a Japanese count are scheming to get the lady engaged, rob her fortune, and lock her up in a madhouse.
