"A lush, chilly entertainment that's a little bit Hitchcock and a little bit Sirk."–Movieline

A favorite at this year's Cannes, Toronto, and Fantastic Fest film festivals, The Housemaid is a stylish, sexy thriller from South Korea about an innocent young woman caught in the twisted web of a rich family's games.

Eun-yi (Cannes Best Actress winner Jeon Do-youn of Secret Sunshine) is hired as a nanny in a lavish mansion by a businessman and his very pregnant wife. When Eun-yi is seduced by the father of the house, she becomes the unwitting victim in a series of traps laid by the women of the house (the wife, her villainous mother, and their seemingly loyal but increasingly bitter housekeeper). Intensely erotic and fiendishly entertaining, The Housemaid builds to an unforgettable climax as Eun-yi must outwit them and escape their schemes to protect her sanity—and her life—from the vicious family.
