Drafthouse Films Acquires Official South Korean Oscar Entry 'Pieta' (Video Clip)

Tim League's Drafthouse Films has acquired "Pieta," South Korea's official entry in the 2013 Best Foreign Language Oscar race. From award-winning director Kim Ki-duk ("Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring"), the violent must-see drama, which I saw in Toronto, focuses on a lethal loan shark who maims his vitims for a living. He is forced to reconsider his dangerous lifestyle and his own humanity when a mysterious woman arrives on his doorstep claiming to be the mother he never had.
