Week's New Movie Premieres
Thanks for staying with us.
The weekend is upon us and that means time for a check of the latest films.
This week, there's a Korean movie featured at the Cannes film festival plus a horror flick and the latest in the Pirates of the Carribean sequel.
Here's Son Heekyung.
Director Lee Changdong has released his first film in five years, ''Secret Sunshine.''
IndieWire of the US has chosen the movie as one of ten foreign-language works that are must sees at the Cannes Film Festival.
The love story is about a widow who forms an unlikely relationship with a man after moving to a remote village with her son.

''I play a character named Shinae. She hopes to make it as a private piano tutor. On her way to Milyang, her car breaks down and a mechanic comes to help her. This is where a shy romance begins between two lonely people.''

Director Lee says his fourth feature film moves away from a typical love story.

Another new Korean film out this week is ''Evil Twin.''
This horror movie is about retaliation and redemption and portrays reconciliation between the living and the dead.
A peaceful village during the medieval Joseon Dynasty suddenly sees the awakening of a young woman, who has been in a coma for 10 years after nearly drowning.
The eerie weeping sound might prove disturbing for certain viewers.
''Evil Twin'' signals the rebirth of the classic genre.

From Hollywood is the third installment of the blockbuster ''Pirates of the Caribbean'' series.
The adventure flick has returning cast members Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley and super producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
Movie critics have praised Depp's performance as Captain Jack Sparrow, as well as the film's high-tech special effects.
