Oldboy Director Stokes Hollywood

The legendary Oldboy director Chan-wook Park will make his Hollywood debut on February 28, 2013, with the release of the Hitchcockian thriller/horror Stoker. The film, starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, and Matthew Goode, definitely tells the story of one highly dysfunctional family.

Fox Searchlight Pictures Synopsis of Stoker

Stoker (2013) Poster

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.

In addition to the intriguing trailers, Stoker also has a pretty cool website at: www.letterstoindia.com.

Stoker (Trailer 2)

Stoker is rated R for disturbing violent and sexual content. For some reason, the trailers don’t exactly show the disturbing sexual content between India and her uncle. Guess we’re not ready for that yet.
