Fans of director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengenace, Lady Vengeance, Thirst) only have to wait one more day before they can see his English-language debut, Stoker. The film, penned by Ted Foulke (aka Wentworth Miller), is a true grower. I liked it when I left the theater, only to realize the next day that I actually loved it.
Matthew Goode (Watchmen, A Single Man) wasn’t shooting when I visited the Nashville set (set report), so I was thrilled to catch up with him in Los Angeles last month. Even better, I’d had a chance to see the film – and I was utterly unprepared for just how different Goode is from Uncle Charlie in terms of mannerisms and general affect.
“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.” Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till, Alden Ehrenreich, Phyllis Somerville and Dermot Mulroney also star.
