Lunch & Korean Movie- The Taste of Money

How about the Korean movie The Taste of Money (Directed by Im Sang-Soo) at Facets Cinémathèque in Lincoln Park? We'll eat lunch at Floriole Cafe & Bakery before we walk to the theater at 1517 W Fullerton Ave to watch the movie, which starts at 3:15 pm (115 minutes in Korean with English subtitles).

Synopsis from the Facets site:
"In a mansion on the outskirts of Seoul lives one of the richest families in the entire country. Yoon is the president of a powerful conglomerate, but it is his wife Madame Baek that is really in control. Her personal secretary Young-jak, a handsome young man newly introduced to the world of power, deals with the family's immoral—and frequently illegal—activities. He makes sure that the Baeks' influential American business partner has supply of hookers, and waits for his own opportunity to make it rich.
Everything changes when Madame Baek catches her husband having an affair with their Filipino maid and exacts her revenge by seducing Young-jak. However, Young-jak however has secrets of his own, as he finds himself drawn closer and closer to Nami, Madame Baek's beautiful young daughter.
Korea's greatest provocateur Im Sang-Soo (The Housemaid, A Good Lawyer's Wife) looks at the lifestyle of the rich and decadent in this sexy and controversial erotic thriller, which reveals how wealth and power ultimately corrupt when combined with excessive greed."
