The Handmaiden (US - DVD R1)
Bad news, Sony decided to release Park Chan-wook's latest on DVD only...
Released: 24th January 2017
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the DVD release of Park Chan-wook's
The Handmaiden. This is no mention of extra features in the press release.
Quote: From Park Chan-wook, the celebrated director of Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, Thirst, 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. 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 Tae-ri Kim 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 an unforgettable viewing experience.
