Stoker 2013


Alice in Wonderland’s Mia Wasikowska comes of age in this creepy Hitchcockian thriller, the English Language debut of Old Boy director  Chan-wook Park Wasikowska plays India Stoker, mourning her dead father (Dermot Mulroney), struggling to connect with her mother (Nicole Kidman) and threatened and yet charmed by her sinister uncle (Matthew Goode) . From a tight script by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller, Stoker is a brooding Gothic melodrama that slowly ratchets up the tension, and managed to dodge the genre clichés before reaching a surprising and yet clearly signposted denouement.
