Chan-wook Park, director of the revenge trilogy which included one of the best movies ever, Oldboy (currently being remade by Spike Lee), is making his Hollywood debut with Stoker starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode and penned by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller. Here’s a synopsis.
After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (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.
Yea, so it looks pretty good and knowing Park, it’s going to get a little f*cked up. If it isn’t, I think you’re allowed to go up to him and say, “What happened to you, man? You’ve gone Hollywood!” To which he’d probably reply, “What?!” but in Korean and that’ll be the end of the conversation because neither of you will have any idea about what’s going on at that point.
