About this event

Dana Seitler has selected The Handmaiden (2016) to view this week.

Based on the Sarah Waters novel Fingersmith (2002), The Handmaiden is, at once, a love story and revenger thriller. Set in in Japanese-occupied Korea in the 1930s, the film focuses on a woman named Sooki, who is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress, but secretly she is involved in a plot to defraud her. Things get complicated when Sooki falls in love with her target.
