Late Autumn invited to Toronto

South Korean director Kim Tae-yong's ambitious Korea-China-US co-production "Late Autumn" ("Late Autumn - 2010") has been officially invited to the 35th Toronto International Film Festival, which opens September 9, 2010. Late Autumn will screen in the World Contemporary Cinema section, joining IM Sang-soo's The Housemaid in the Gala category and Kim Jee-woon's "I Saw the Devil" in the Special Presentations section.

Late Autumn is KIM's first English-language production, set and filmed in Washington state, and starring the rising pan-Asian Korean actor Hyeon Bin and Chinese actress Tang Wei of Lust, Caution. The film is the fourth remake of a lost Korean masterpiece of the same titled by cinematic genius Lee Man-hee, released in 1966. Famed directors Kim Ki-young and KIM Soo-yong made admired remakes in 1975 ("Promise of the Flesh") and 1981 (Manchu), respectively.

Following the theme of the original, the story revolves around Anna, a Chinese-American woman imprisoned for murdering her husband, who, while on a 3-day parole meets and falls in love with a Korean-American man on the run. They promise to meet again in two years, but will their promise be kept?

Director KIM is known for his critically acclaimed previous film "Family Ties" ("The Birth of a Family", 2006) and his feature debut, the girls high school horror "Memento Mori" (1999). "Late Autumn" ("Late Autumn - 2010") is a joint production between Korea's Boram Entertainment, M&FC, and US company North by Northwest. A Korean release is expected in the Fall of 2010.
