INTRUDERS playing today and next Thursday at Lincoln Center

Intruders / Jo nan-ja-deul
Directed by NOH Young-seok
South Korea, 2013, 99 minutes
Korean language with English subtitles

Intruders is a "twisty blackly comic suspense thriller from South Korea, where sometimes it seems like they do this sort of thing better than anyone else." It will be shown twice at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Film Comment Selects 2014 series. The first screening will be today, Thursday, February 20th at 6:45pm. Director Noh Young-seok will appear in person at this screening. The second and final screening at this series will be next Thursday, February 27th at 4:15pm. (Info and tickets here.)

Synopsis: Looking for peace and quiet, a screenwriter rents a winter cabin in a remote country backwater to concentrate on his latest project. On the bus he does his best to rebuff a talkative character fresh out of prison, who unfortunately gets off at the same destination. Throw in a group of obnoxious kids on a ski vacation in the cabin next door, a pair of menacing game hunters who turn out to be related to the ex-con, and a shifty cop and you can see where things are headed, right? Maybe, maybe not. In his second effort, indie director Noh Young-seok shows he’s a talent to watch out for.

Co-presented with the Korea Society and Subway Cinema.

P.S. -  Don't forget about HONG Sang-soo's Our Sunhi which will be shown at 4:45pm this afternoon.
