Late Autumn (Manchu)

Late Autumn (Manchu)

Directed by Kim Tae-yong. With Hyun Bin and Tang Wei. Anna is on her way to Seattle to attend her mother’s funeral on a special weekend release from prison, where she is serving time for killing her abusive husband. On the bus, she meets Hoon, a “companion for hire” for lonely, older women. Both are running away: Anna from her past and Hoon from one of his clients’ husbands. Both find something in each other while they spend a day together in the misty, autumnal city of Seattle. This is a remake of the famed 1961 film with the same title directed by Lee Man-hee. A co-production of South Korea, China, Hong Kong, and the United States, Late Autumn was shot completely in English in Seattle. A Special Tribute to The Korea Society’s November 2011 national outreach program to Seattle. 113 min.
