SYNOPSIS: Director Zhang Yimou’s reimagining of a classic Three Kingdoms epic, the action/drama SHADOW tells the story of a great King and his people who have been displaced from their homeland and long to win it back. The King is wild and ambitious, but his motives and methods are mysterious. His great general is a visionary who fervently desires to win the ultimate battle, but needs to lay his plans in secret. The women of the palace struggle to find redemption in a world in which they have no place. And then there is a commoner, the “everyman” around whom the inexorable forces of history swirl, always ready to swallow him up. Filmed in a unique “Chinese watercolor” style with a cast of China’s finest actors, SHADOW is both Zhang Yimou’s return to his roots as a filmmaker and a bold new beginning.
Shadow is set to make its U.S. debut May 3, 2019.
