Stoker

In director Park Chan-wook’s (Oldboy) deliriously stylish and offbeat thriller Stoker, India’s (Mia Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, and her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman). Soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, the friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him, leading to terrifying consequences she never could have anticipated. Deftly blending the nail-biting suspense of such Hitchcock classics as Shadow of a Doubt with his own patented brand of visceral malevolence, Park Chan-wook’s American debut is a wickedly dark domestic drama shot through with operatic horror. (Dir. by Park Chan-wook, 2013, USA, 99 mins., Rated R, Fox Searchlight) Digital & 35mm
