Oldboy (11-Nov-2013)

Director: Spike Lee

Writer: Mark Protosevich

From manga by: Nobuaki Minegishi and Garon Tsuchiya

Keywords: Thriller

An advertising executive held in solitary confinement against his will for two decades embarks on a vengeance-obsessed quest to find his captors.

Based on the 2003 South Korean cult hit of the same name, Oldboy centers on well-to-do advertising executive Joe Doucett as he is knocked unconscious following a bender at a bar in 1993 and made prisoner in a hotel room after being framed for the rape and murder of his ex-wife. Escaping from solitary confinement in 2013 after learning of his daughter's desire to reunite with him through a program on a television set, a revenge-minded Joe sets out on a quest to levy his own brand of punishment on those responsible for his incarceration, only to find himself plunging deeper and deeper into a web woven with deceit and betrayal as his quixotic journey wears on.
