Park Chan-wook, director of Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengenace, Lady Vengeance, Thirst and even JSA, makes his English-language debut this Friday, March 1, with Fox Searchlight’s Stoker. Penned by Ted Foulke (aka Wentworth Miller), Vulture has landed an exclusive clip that delivers more of the bizarre family dynamics through the grace of Nicole Kidman’s seductive dance.
The flick stars Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till, Alden Ehrenreich, Phyllis Somerville and Dermot Mulroney.
“After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.”
