Lady Vengeance (AKA Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance)
Join us for a screening of the third installment of Park Chan-Wook’s Vengeance trilogy, Lady Vengeance!
“When she was 19, Lee Geum-Ja made a terrible mistake. She confessed to kidnapping and murdering a young boy, and is sentenced to 13 years in prison. Despised and reviled by a shocked nation, Geum-Ja undergoes a religious conversion, becoming a model prisoner to both her fellow prisoners and their guards. Her kind deeds and saintly acts earn her the nickname “TheKindhearted Ms. Geum-Ja.”
However, as soon as she steps outside the prison walls, we learn of her other nickname — “The Witch” — and we learn that she didn’t spend those 13 years simply working for atonement. A complex scheme of revenge against Mr. Baek, her accomplice and betrayer, has been brewing all that time, a scheme so complex that she’s pulled other prisoners into it, using them as a quasi-underground empire to get her close enough to pull the trigger.”
