“Mrs. K” rocked the 27th Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) last November 27, 2016. Hitting the special presentation at Capitol Theater was Hong Kong martial arts super star and Mrs. K heroine herself Kara Wei. Fans couldn’t get enough of Kara Wei (known for her thrilling turns in “My Young Auntie” (1982), “Rain Dogs” (2006), “At The End of Daybreak” (2009), and “Rigor Mortis” (2014)) specially since this is the iconic actress’ farewell film. Mrs. K‘s Writer-director Ho Yuhang, Taiwanese rocker Wu Bai, and Malaysian newcomer Siow Li Xuan also graced the red carpet.
Mrs. K follows a suburban housewife whose ordinary life is shaken up when an ex-cop—who knows about her criminal past—comes in to town to blackmail her. Mrs. K must battle against her former foes to protect her husband and daughter at all costs. It is a timeless tale of vengeance and redemption that promises to bring both electrifying action sequences and heartfelt drama.
The film also stars Hong Kong veteran actor Simon Yam (“The Thieves” (2012) and “Sky on Fire” (2016)), award-winning Malaysian actor Faizal Hussein and Hong Kong martial artist Lau Wing. Malaysian film director Dain Iskandar Said as well as Hong Kong directors Fruit Chan (“The Midnight After” (2016)) and Kirk Wong also make cameos.
