iW NEWS | Schamus: "Lee has crafted a masterpiece about and for grown-ups"

Reacting to the NC-17 rating given to Ang Lee‘s new film, “Lust, Caution,” Focus Features CEO James Schamus said in a statement yesterday, “As with so many of his previous films, Oscar-winning director Ang Lee has crafted a masterpiece about and for grown-ups. Focus Features accepts the MPAA’s NC-17 rating without protest and ‘Lust, Caution’ will be released this fall as previously announced.” The film is described by Focus as, “a startling erotic espionage thriller about the fate of an ordinary woman’s heart.” The new film is based on the short story by Eileen Chang, and stars Tony Leung and newcomer Tang Wei.
