I had a chance to see Park Chan-wook's psychological thriller, Stoker, at Sundance this year, and it was my favorite film at the festival. I absolutely loved it, and I think you will, too. It had incredible visual storytelling, as I said in my review, "The film was beautifully jacked up. I've always loved Park's direction, but I think this is could be his best film production to date." You can read my full review of the film here, and click here to watch our video review. Here's the synopsis...
India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) was not prepared to lose her father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in a tragic auto accident. The solitude of her woodsy family estate, the peace of her tranquil town, and the unspoken somberness of her home life are suddenly upended by not only this mysterious accident, but by the sudden arrival of her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), whom she never knew existed. When Charlie moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evie (Nicole Kidman), India thinks the void left by her father’s death is finally being filled by his closet bloodline. Soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect that this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives. Yet instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless young woman becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
Stoker opens up next month on March 1st. Check out the photos!
