Our Ang Lee season arrives at Lust, Caution, an erotic thriller set in Hong Kong in 1938 and in Shanghai in 1942 which sees student Wong Chia Chi being drawn into an assassination plot to kill special agent for the Japanese goverment Mr. Yee only to soon find herself falling for him as she is forced to decide between lust and duty.
