The Last Princess
A historical drama that refreshingly presents a non-patriotic view of Korea’s colonial past, telling the story of Princess Deokhye (Son Ye-Jin), who was the last princess of Korea.
Under Japanese rule, she is taken to Japan as a hostage and struggles to maintain the hope of the Korean people. But soon a fighter for Korean independence embarks on a romantic mission to bring Princess Deokhye back to South Korea.
“Handled by a director who is sensitive to the inner turmoil of characters, understands that a muted approach can often evoke greater emotions, and weaves an intensely personal story into historical context.” ~Rumy Doo, The Korea Herald
“A heart-rending lead performance by Son Ye-jin graces the heavily wrought melodrama with true pathos.” ~Maggie Lee, Variety
