Madman Entertainment has announced that South Korean Box Office Topper, The Age of Shadows, will make its way to Australian cinemas.
The film has seen enormous success since its release in South Korea, earning a cumulative 52 million USD in three weeks, and submission into the 89th annual Academy Awards. Aussies will get the opportunity to see what the fuss is about when the action packed South Korean film hits Australian cinemas from November 3.
Directed by Kim Jee-woon (A Bittersweet Life, I Saw the Devil), The Age of Shadows is a period spy thriller set during the Japanese occupation in the late 1920s.
A former Korean police captain in the Japanese Force, Lee Jung-chool (Song Kang-ho, Snowpiercer) is given a mission to infiltrate the armed resistance, and expose their activities to the Japanese authorities. However, when Lee begins to doubt his loyalties and show sympathy toward his countrymen, he is caught in the middle of the resistance’s plan to obtain explosives and destroy Seoul’s Japanese Headquarters. His shift in alliance causes him to become a wanted man, and a deadly cat-and-mouse game unfolds in which no one can be trusted.
