We really are being blessed with greatness this week as a second clip from Park Chan-wook’s first English language thriller, Stoker, has arrived. After the chilling first clip, the second features Mia Wasikowska as India Stoker and Matthew Goode as her Uncle Charles being spoken to by the local police. Doesn’t sound all that exciting, but there is good stuff here!
Watch the clip, and be in amazement at Chan-wook’s superb use of his camera as it drifts around the characters and weaves in and out of the conversation like a fly on a wall. I haven’t seen the film, but if this sort of quality camera work is on show, as well as such a top cast and genius director, then I fully believe the superb word of mouth this dark and mysterious film has been receiving.
The stunning new clip can be seen below along with a brand new featurette which looks at the characters of Stoker. Enjoy!
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.
