US Trailer For Im Sang-Soo's THE HOUSEMAID
Im Sang-Soo's erotically charged thriller The Housemaid won a lot of love on the festival circuit for the very simple reason that it is very good. Im take what is a essentially a very tawdry tale here and executes it with such elegance and style that it stands as one of the very best tales of beautiful people behaving badly in recent years. And with the US release coming soon via IFC a brand new trailer has just been released. Check it below.
A favorite at this year's Cannes, Toronto and Fantastic film festivals, THE HOUSEMAID is a stylish, sexy thriller about an innocent young woman caught in the twisted web of a rich family's games.
Eun-yi (Cannes Best Actress winner Jeon Do-youn of SECRET SUNSHINE) is hired as a nanny in a lavish mansion by businessman Hoon (Lee Jung-jae) and his very pregnant wife, Hae-ra (Seo Woo). When Eun-yi is seduced by the father of the house, she becomes the unwitting victim in a serious of traps laid by the women of the house - Hae-ra, her villainous mother (Park Ji-young), and their seemingly loyal but increasingly bitter housekeeper (Yun Yeo-jong). Intensely erotic and fiendishly entertaining, THE HOUSEMAID builds to an unforgettable climax as Eun-yi must outwit them and escape their schemes to protect her sanity - and her life - from the vicious family.
