Art imitates life
in this loosely autobiographical tale of a life lived on the silver screen and
in the public eye. Celebrated actress Moon Sori, famous for her award-winning
roles in The Handmaiden and Oasis, plays herself in an impressive
directorial debut. Comprising three inter-connected stories, Moon’s witty and
self-deprecating film is a brazenly honest portrait that highlights the
anxieties of a woman maturing under the spotlight in an industry that values
youth and beauty. It’s a funny, insightful and touching film that offers a rare
look behind the scenes of the life of a successful actress coping with the
pressures and burdens of fame.
