Charlene Choi Portrays Underage Prostitute in “Sara”
Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) challenged her limits in the upcoming Category III film Sara <雛妓>, a psychological thriller about an underage prostitute. Directed by Herman Yau (邱禮濤) and produced by Chapman To (杜汶澤), the film follows a troubled young woman who finds herself lost in her own dark memories and is unable to pull herself out.
Sara (Charlene Choi), who works at a magazine firm, encounters the underage prostitute Dok-My when she was in Thailand. The encounter triggers the hidden memories she had over ten years ago when she was sexually abused by her stepfather. This led her to develop feelings for Kam Ho Yin (Simon Yam 任達華), the “long-legged uncle” who is thirty years her senior. Their immoral relationship continued for eight years.
The official poster for Sara was released earlier this week, showing an unconscious and naked Charlene submerged in a tub of blood. Charlene stripped off almost all her clothes and used tape to protect her private areas. She stayed submerged in the tub of water for nearly two hours, joking that it was a year-worth of baths for her.
“The poster was shot while we filmed the movie,” said Charlene. “The photographer snapped photos candidly, so it appeared more natural. We did not purposely do a photo shoot just for the movie poster. We didn’t attempt to make a pose. The results were good, as the mood of the photos really matched the sentiment of the movie.”
Simon, who shared many intimate and provocative scenes with Charlene in the film, said Charlene was very good in portraying her character. The film will open in theaters in April 2015.
