Korean Movie Night: The Age of Shadows

November 29, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Korean Movie Night: The Age of ShadowsThis movie screening is free and open to the public!

About the Movie:

“A Korean police captain named Lee Jung-chool (Song Kang-ho) has been charged with rooting out members of his country’s resistance movement by his cruel Japanese overlords. But while Lee has a history of selling out his own people to secure a favorable position with the Japanese, he’s been hit harder than usual by the death of Kim Jang-ok (Park Hee-soon), a resistance fighter who used to be his classmate. The leader of the resistance, Che-san (Lee Byung-hun), senses that this turncoat, if approached and handled properly, might be turned once more — this time in their favor. And so begins an incremental, ingeniously coded psychological dance between Lee and a key resistance figure named Kim Woo-jin (Gong Yoo), whose antique shop is a front for a scheme to smuggle explosives from Shanghai into Seoul. While Lee could theoretically bring down this operation at any moment, he seems just as likely to become an ally, thanks in no small part to Kim’s skillful application of pressure.”
