Erotic tale of espionage stirs Little Theatre audiences

Feb. 5, 2008

KALAMAZOO--The Kalamazoo Film Society presents "Lust, Caution," a Golden Globe-nominated thriller from the director of "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Ice Storm," Friday through Sunday, Feb. 8-10, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Show times are 7 and 10 p.m. Friday; 4, 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30 and 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 and $3 for students.

Erotic, thrilling and quietly mesmerizing, "Lust, Caution" is a tale of espionage and conspiracy in Japanese-occupied China during World War II. It tells of the doomed romance between a student-radical and the powerful political figure her group seeks to assassinate. Their role-playing is acted out against a background of explicit sexuality and a changing political atmosphere.

"Lust, Caution" is shown in Mandarin with English subtitles. The 2007 film has a run time of 157 minutes and is rated NC-17 for graphic sexuality.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's East Campus. Free off-street parking is available behind the theatre.
