Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s first English language film, Stoker, recently played at the Sundance Film Festival, and has received some truly incredible reviews. The word of mouth is that the film is dark, sinister and very unnerving, and while we have seen plenty of trailers and images, the whole film is still a bit of a mystery, yet you cannot deny the feeling that something is hideously wrong with the family in the film.
Fox Searchlight have released a new batch of images, some of them are brand new, while others have been around for a few weeks now. However, it is nice to have them all here in one handy gallery, so check them out below.
Stoker is directed by Park Chan-Wook, and is based on a screenplay written by Wentworth Miller. The excellent cast includes Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, Dermot Mulroney, Lucas Till and Jackie Weaver. Expect to see Stoker in UK cinemas 1st March 2013.
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.
