Directed by Hwang Dong-hyeok (황동혁)

Drama

125min | Release date in South Korea :

Also known as "Dogani" and "Silenced"
Synopsis
Based on the novel of the same name written by star author Gong Ji-young, “The Crucible” follows a group of children with disabilities who suffer physical and sexual abuse at the hands of their teachers.
Gong is one of a few star authors in Korea whose novels have sold more than a million copies. When her novel was published in June 2009, it became an instant hit not only because it was written by Gong but because it is based on a true story.
The film begins as Gang In-ho (Gong Yoo), who is working to earn money for his daughter’s surgery, is appointed to a school for hearing-impaired children in Gwangju. But what he discovers there is an ugly truth: the children are being physically and sexually abused by their teachers. When he decides to fight for the children’s rights and expose the crimes being committed at the school, In-ho teams up with human rights activist Seo Yu-jin (Jeong Yu-mi). But he and Yu-jin soon realize the school’s principal and teachers, and even the police, prosecutors and churches in the community are actually trying to cover up the truth.
Director Hwang Dong-hyeok, who previously directed the 2007 hit film “My Father,” has received rave reviews for turning a successful novel into a well-made motion picture.

    2014/02/24,
    Ice gives way to fire as "Pompeii" overthrows "Frozen" at the top… Disney's Oscar contender "Frozen" was finally dislodged at the top of pile in a hotly contested tussle at the top. This past weekend saw Paul W. S. Anderson's disaster epic "Pompeii" entered in first position (542,060-21.3%), a film that has been struggling globally after poor reviews stunted its hopes of reaching the $100M it took to produce. Despite its unimpressive stats thus far, Anderson's indulgent 3D flick only narrowly outplayed Kim Kwang-sik-I's newly released "Tabloid Truth" (440,829-20%). "Tabloid Truth" is already looking good to overtake Kim's pervious effort with "My Dear Desperado", a romantic comedy that claimed nearly 700K stubs back in 2010,...More
  • An interview with movie director Hwang Dong-hyeok

    2014/02/10, Source,
    -You have a high-pitched and loud voice. Im just a fun guy. I crack jokes in this voice and cheer people up when drinking. When I said I would be the director of "The Crucible", my friends wondered why I make such a movie. -Your debut film "My Father"" (2007) and "Miss Granny" are all about families. Both movies are about my family. "My Father" is in line with a short film, which I made while studying in the U.S. I was strongly impressed when my aunt who was adopted by an American family came to Korea to her mother, who is my grandmother. My mother lost her husband at 29 like Nah Moon-hee in "Miss Granny". She also lives with my grandmother,...More
