In the aftermath of the night of the Oscars, when the United States will have awarded the best of international cinema, Threatening will be called upon to reopen the Italian cinemas. The Lee Isaac Chung-directed film, six nominations for the next edition of the awards, will come released on Monday 26 April, the first title to revive local cinemas.
Symbol of an America determined to find tolerance and inclusion, Threatening is the semi-autobiographical story of Chung, born in Korea and raised in the United States, where his parents tried to ensure him a better, easier future.
The director, who produced the film alongside Brad Pitt’s Plan B, explained that he focused on his own story in an attempt to explain to his daughter, a girl of seven, what and how many sacrifices her paternal grandparents made. Thus, it was born Threatening, a story of redemption and courage to which the Academy wanted to give different chances of victory.
The film, which Sky Cinema will air on Wednesday 5 May, in absolute first time, it was nominated in the most famous categories of the Oscars. Best Film, Best Director. Then, best supporting actress, with Yuh-Jung Youn a great favorite.
