322: The Handmaiden

Published 24 July 2019 Hosted by Katie Molloy and Melissa Savage

We missed this highly-regarded film from Korean director Park Chan-Wook (director of one of our oft-overlooked favourites, Stoker) because it missed out on an Australian release back in 2016. Based on an English novel, it tells the story of two women brought together in unusual circumstances in Japanese-ruled Korea in the 1930s. We finally caught it on Netflix in 2018.
