When opportunity knocks, answer at your own risk.
A sensation at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Korean director Im Sang-soo's remake of the classic 1960 film is the story of Eun-yi (Jeon Do-yeon, Cannes 2007 Best Actress Award Winner for Secret Sunshine), a young innocent hired to care for a wealthy pregnant woman. Eun-yi's presence attracts the amorous attentions of Hoon, the master of the house, and he begins an affair with her. Igniting the jealousy of an older maid who knows many family secrets, Eun-yi quickly finds herself in the center of a familial power struggle. With The Housemaid, Im Sang-soo brings both a keen eye for the dynamics of sex and power and a lush, luxurious sense of style.
