Park Chan-wook’s “Decision to Leave” has been nominated for a Critics Choice Award.
According to the Critics Choice Association, “Decision to Leave” is competing in the best foreign film category, along with five other films.
The film also earned a nomination in the best non-English language film category at the Golden Globe Awards and won director Park the best director award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
“Decision to Leave” follows police detective Hae-jun, portrayed by Park Hae-il, who begins to fall for a suspect: a Chinese widow named Seo-rae, portrayed by Tang Wei. The pair meet after Hae-jun begins to investigate the mysterious death of a man — Seo-rae’s husband — who was found dead after falling from a mountain.
The association also nominated two Korean-language dramas, “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” and “Pachinko,” in the category for best foreign language series.
The winners of this year’s Critics Choice Awards will be announced on Jan. 15, at the Critics Choice Awards gala in Los Angeles.
