Stoker

Director: Chan-wook Park

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, Nicole Kidman.

Hitchcock type thriller which sadly does not quite reach the mark. On the same day India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) is 18 her father, Richard (Dermot Mulroney). At the funeral estranged Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), arrives and agrees to stay on with India and her mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman) to help and keep the pair company. This causes much concern of the family housekeeper (Phyllis Sommerville) and an estranged aunt (Jacki Weaver), both of whom know about Charlie’s mysterious past. Within no time the sullen teenager and her flirtatious mother find themselves inextricably drawn to his mysterious demeanor. Not too difficult to work out the outcome but none the less a well acted horror and which is beautifully shot.
