Park Chan-wook's Stoker is one of my most anticipated movies premiering at The Sundance Film Festival, and I get to see it tomorrow! In anticipation of the premiere, they've released a clip from the film featuring Nicole Kidman's crazy character giving her daughter played by Mia Wasikowska a not so motivational and uplifting speech about life. It looks like Kidman is going to give an incredibly intense performance.
Prison Break's Wentworth Miller wrote the great looking movie, and it has a solid cast of actors that also includes Matthew Goode, Dermot Mulroney, Jacki Weaver, Alden Ehrenreich, and Lucas Till.
After India's (Wasikowska's) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
The movie will be released on March 1st, 2013. I hope your parents never talked to you like this while growing up!
