THE THRONE

DIRECTOR: Lee Joon-ik - SOUTH KOREA

 “There are kings who have killed their own brothers and nephews to preserve the dynasty.” These words are spoken by the 16th-century Korean monarch Yeongjo, unaware of the grave irony that he will one day have his own son put to death in The Throne, an outstandingly crafted period drama that recounts a famous historical outrage with a sense of empathy as potent and measured as its anger. Led by a towering performance from Song Kang-ho, but well cast down to the last courtier and concubine, this is a gripping return to Joseon-dynasty intrigue . . .stranding two men on opposite sides of an emotional and ideological divide that will ultimately exact payment in blood.”—Variety. (125 mins.)

Filmography: Wish (2013), Blades of Blood (2010), Once Upon a Time in the Battlefield (2003)



Interests: Oscar Submissions.
