[Movies] Nicole Kidman stars in a sexy thriller "Stoker"

Stoker is a sexy and dark thriller penned by Wentworth Miller and directed by acclaimed Korean filmaker Park Chan-Wook starring Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode and Mia Wasikowska. This is Park Chan-Wook's first English-language feature. Stoker is about India Stoker (Wasikowska), having experienced losing her beloved father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) ) in a tragic auto accident on her 18th birthday, her quiet life on the family’s secluded estate is suddenly shattered. Exquisitely sensitive, India’s exhibits an impassive demeanor which masks the deep feelings and heightened senses that only her father understood. 

India finds herself drawn to her father’s long-lost brother, Charlie (Matthew Goode), who unexpectedly arrives for the funeral and decides to stay on with her and her emotionally unstable mother, Evie (Nicole Kidman). While India initially mistrusts her charming but mysterious uncle, he fascinates her as well, and she begins to realize how much they have in common.

As Charlie reveals himself to her little by little, India becomes increasingly infatuated with her charismatic relative and comes to realize that his arrival is no coincidence. With her uncle to guide her, she is about to fulfill her unusual destiny.

So why did Kidman accepted the role? STOKER’s eerie elegance and complex relationships made the film an irresistible proposition for the actress. “There’s nothing generic about it,” Kidman says. “It’s got an unusual cadence to the dialogue. The pacing is not typical. When I read the script, I was unsure of what was going to happen next, which I liked.”

I think that this is something interesting that I'll be able to shell out a couple of bucks to watch. I wouldn't mind. More skin or not from Nicole, what matters is the story. An Asian director and a good script. I think that will do for me. 

“Stoker” will open in cinemas on March 1 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
