Who's Seoul's toughest cop? That would be Mi-young (Ra Mi-ran), whose grit and determination have earned her the respect of her peers and the scorn of criminals. And then she met aspiring law student Jo Ji-chul (Yoon Sang-hyun), got married, had kids and settled down, and now she works a boring desk job fielding complaints at the Public Service Centre. To make matters worse, her rookie detective sister-in-law, Ji-hye (Lee Sung-kyoung), has just blown a big case and is assigned to the same office. But when a young woman dies after reporting she's the victim of a porn blackmail scam that no one else seems to care about, Mi-young, Ji-hye and co-worker Yang Jang-mi (Sooyoung, of K-Pop group Girls' Generation) take the case up themselves to stop the blackmailers before they claim their next victim. There are a lot of badass lady cops in this city, and they're all ready to prove their worth and kick these scumbags’ asses!

Remember the buddy cop movie? MISS AND MRS. COPS writer-director Jung Da-won has magically resurrected it, with a pair of terrific actresses with great chemistry and a story driven exclusively by strong, identifiable women who also happen to be total badasses. Just watching these three together will be one of the highlights of your Fantasia ’19, and by the time it's over you're going to want sequels. This is the kind of quality entertainment that South Korean cinema has been excelling at for the last twenty years or so, but MISS & MRS. COPS is very much a movie of the moment. Fantasia 2019 has a number of films with strong female leads (RIOT GIRLS, BLOOD ON HER HANDS, A GOOD WOMAN IS HARD TO FIND, and NO MERCY, among others) but we're inclined to say that of these films MISS AND MRS. COPS is the most fun. Don't miss it. – Matthew Kiernan
