"아가씨 (The Handmaiden)" Movie Screening

Amazon Prime Videos occasionally hosts premier movie screenings of upcoming films that Amazon Studios has purchased the U.S. rights to display. I was lucky to be invited by a friend this past Thursday, October 13th, to see the screening of the 2016 Korean movie "아가씨 (The Handmaiden)" (the literal translation is "Lady"), set to release on Friday, October 14th. Pictured above is one of the posters in the theater.
This was the voucher I received as I entered the theater.
And here is one of the official posters of the movie. "The Handmaiden" is one of the most suspenseful thriller movies I've ever seen. It's very complex and very well done,but is definitely not for the faint of heart and not for a younger audience. The story is set in Japanese-controlling Korea where a Korean conman and thief plot to deceive a wealthy Japanese maiden of her money. I won't say any more about the plot! Overall, it's definitely a very complex movie that is full of twists and turns. But it's too tough of a movie to watch over and over again; once was enough^^
