A sensation at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Korean director Im Soo-sang's remake of the classic 1960 film is the story of Eun-yi (Jeon Do-yeon, Cannes 2007 Best Actress Award winner for Secret Sunshine), a young innocent hired to care for a wealthy pregnant woman. Eun-yi's presence attracts the amorous attentions of Hoon, the master of the house, and he begins an affair with her. Igniting the jealousy of an older maid who knows many family secrets, Eun-yi quickly finds herself in the center of a familial power struggle. With THE HOUSEMAID Im Soo-sang brings both a keen eye for the dynamics of sex and power and a lush, luxurious sense of style.

Eun-yi (Cannes Best Actress winner Jeon Do-youn of SECRET SUNSHINE) is hired as a nanny in an impossibly lavish mansion by businessman Hoon (Lee Jung-jae) and his very pregnant wife, Hae-ra (Seo Woo). When Hoon callously seduces the young maid, she becomes the unwitting victim in a battle of wills between him and the scheming women of the house-Hae-ra, her villainous mother (Park Ji-young), and their seemingly loyal but increasingly bitter housekeeper (Yun Yeo-jong). Intensely erotic and fiendishly entertaining, THE HOUSEMAID builds to an unforgettable climax as Eun-yi tries to maintain her cunning to protect her sanity-and her life-from the ruthless vipers around her.
