The Handmaiden was one of the most talked about films at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Directed by the legendary Korean director Park Chan-Wook, who has given us movies like Oldboy, Lady Vengeance and Thirst is back in the game and this looks like a sensational thriller. Watch the trailer below:
The Handmaiden centers around two women in the 1930s — a secluded and wealthy Japanese heiress and her newly-hired young Korean handmaiden — as the latter attempts to defraud the woman out of her large inheritance with the help of a conman. However, things take an unexpected and sinister turn when the two ladies begin to fall in love. Inspired by Sarah Waters’ novel Fingersmith, the film will be released in U.S. theaters on October 19. Hope this releases here in India.
