New girl Sookee is hired as a handmaiden to Japanese heiress Lady Hideko, who lives a secluded life on a large countryside estate with her domineering Uncle Kouzuki. But Sookee has a secret: she has been recruited by a swindler posing as a Japanese nobleman to carry out a devilish plan of robbery, seduction and imprisonment which seems set to succeed – until Sookee and Lady Hideko fall prey to unexpected emotions.

Sarah Waters’ historical novel Fingersmith is relocated from Victorian Britain to 1930s Korea in this erotic adaptation from the acclaimed director of Old Boy, Lady Vengeance and Stoker.

…an erotic thriller that prioritises female sexuality, and exquisite set design, to intoxicating effect.
