Images From Park Chan-Wook’s ‘Stoker’ Starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, and Matthew Goode


Acclaimed South Korean director, Park Chan-Wook is most known for his Vengeance Trilogy movies in his native country.  He’s bringing his stylized flair to western audiences in his first English language film, Stoker.  The screenplay was written by Prison Break’s Wentworth Miller.

The film stars Mia Wasikowska (Lawless) as India Stoker; Nicole Kidman (Hemingway and Gellhorn) as her mother Eveyln Stoker; Matthew Goode (A Single Man) as her uncle Charlie Stoker; Dermot Mulroney (The Grey) as her deceased father Richard Stoker; Jacki Weaver (The Silver Linings Playbook) as Aunt Gwendolyn Stoker; Lucas Till (X-Men First Class) as Chris Pitts; Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures) as Whip Taylor; and Phyllis Somerville (The Big C) as Mrs. McGarrick.

The story follows India, whose estranged uncle moves into the family home with India and her mother after the death of her father.  The enigmatic Uncle Charlie eventually takes up with India’s mother against the objections of other family members and the relationship becomes the topic of town gossip. Just as Uncle Charlie arrives in town, people begin to go missing.  Although India is initially suspicious of her uncle, she becomes increasingly drawn to him as he tutors her in the ways of his world.

Mia Wasikowska takes on a more meaty and darker role as evidence by her hair color alone.  Nicole Kidman turns out another great performance as the cold and brutally honest mother.  The break-out would be English actor Matthew Goode like we haven’t seen him before.  His prior roles consisted of playing Colin Firth’s dashing partner who dies in a Single Man and Charles Ryder in Brideshead Revisted.  Goode is chillingly menacing as the murderous Uncle Charlie.

Watch Trailer at Philly Cinephile.

The film will be in theaters March 1, 2013.
