- Event Details
- After being wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and murdering a young child, a beautiful young woman (Lee Young-ae) is imprisoned for 13 years and forced to give up her own daughter. While in prison she gains the respect and loyalty of her fellow cellmates, all the while plotting her vendetta on the man responsible (OLDBOY’s Choi Min-Shik). Upon her release she sets in motion an elaborate plan of retribution, but what she discovers is a truth so horrifying, even revenge doesn’t seem punishment enough. The final film in director Park Chan-wook's acclaimed "Vengeance Trilogy," and like the two other films of the series, LADY VENGEANCE is a revenge tragedy on a Shakespearian scale -- and more than a touch sensational. And yet, for all those sensational aspects, LADY VENGEANCE observes the toll of vengeance on the revenger; there's nothing cheap or easy about it. In short, it's a harrowing and emotionally complex masterpiece.
