Come see the world premiere of the Director’s Cut of The Handmaiden, a month before the movie comes out on general release. Tickets will sell out so get yours fast.

If you’ve heard of Chan-wook Park then you know he is writer/director of the classic, Old Boy.

The World Premiere of the Director’s Cut of The Handmaiden. Chan-wook Park’s latest, critically lauded historical epic, in this version runs an extra 22mins to the standard version of the film. 1930s Korea, in the period of Japanese occupation, a new girl (Sookee) is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress (Hideko) who lives a secluded life on a large countryside estate with her domineering Uncle (Kouzuki). But the maid has a secret. She is a pickpocket recruited by a swindler posing as a Japanese Count to help him seduce the Lady to elope with him, rob her of her fortune, and lock her up in a madhouse. The plan seems to proceed according to plan until Sookee and Hideko discover some unexpected emotions.

We meet at the Curzon Soho bar for a drink or two before the movie.
