    Synopsis


    The Housemaid
    A young woman becomes both benefactor and victim of a wealthy family's world of privilege and power in this drama from South Korea. Eun-yi (Jeon Do-yeon) is a beautiful but naïve young woman who is hired by a wealthy family as a housekeeper when their long-time domestic, Byung-sik (Youn Yuh-jung), needs help keeping up with her responsibilities. Hoon (Lee Jung-jae) shares his opulent home with his lovely wife, Hae-ra (Seo Woo), who is expecting a baby, and their daughter. While all seems to be happy between Hoon and Hera, the man of the house is clearly attracted to Eun-yi, and after he seduces her they begin having an affair. Hoon's indiscretion becomes obvious when Eun-yi gets pregnant, but he and his family believe Eun-yi is the one who made a mistake, not Hoon, and before long Hae-ra's mother (Park Ji-young) pays a visit to help the family take care of their dirty laundry. A re-imagining of Kim Ki-young's classic 1960 thriller, Hanyo (aka The Housemaid) was an official selection at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
