All eyes will be on Beijing-born actress Zhang Ziyi of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" fame at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, following China Free Press' recent shocking allegation that Zhang carried on sexual relationships for money with a number of high-ranking Chinese officials. She will no doubt be plagued with questions regarding the claim when she comes to Toronto in support of her turn in Hur Jin-ho's sensual adaptation of the classic French novel, "Dangerous Liasons." Frankly, we're more excited to see Jin-ho's take on the material, which updates Pierre Choderlos de Laclo's tale of sex and scheming to 1930s Shanghai, than to hear her defend herself to the press, after watching the promising just-released trailer for the drama. Check it out for yourself below:
