Hollywood has been eyed on the South Korean Director, Screenwriter, Producer and former Film Critic, Park Chan-Wook ever since his Vengeance trilogy (Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy & Sympathy For lady Vengeance) and received the Grand Prix for “Oldboy” at Cannes Film Festival, which was the second highest honor in the festival. After turning down the Evil Dead remake, Park, whose known best for capturing brutality and violence finally decided to do Stroker as his first English-film debut.
Stoker, a Psycho-Sexual Thriller revolves around the unconventional family drama between the 18th year olds India (Mia Wasikowska), her unstable mother (Nicole Kidman) and the mysterious Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode). Charlie, the uncle India never knew existed comes to visit her after the death of her father. Soon he starts insinuating himself to India and her mentally manipulative mother, creating sexual and violence chaos. Uncle Charlie matches India for intense, staring eyes, smirk in a sinister way. This bizarre love triangle wrapped in modern Gothic horror a la Park’s tense. Stoker opens in March 1. (Text Nuy Darmadjaja)
