The talk of the festival has centered on the horror movie “Stoker,” with a cast featuring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode and Jacki Weaver.
Kidman shines in one of the hit films of the festival, “Stoker,” a Hitchcockian suspense thriller by veteran Korean director Park Chan-Wook, making his English-language feature film debut.
Stoker is drama-horror-mystery film, the trailer begins with the funeral of India Stoker’s (Mia Wasikowska) father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in procession.
Kidman is cast as the unstable mother Evie (Nicole Kidman), and uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) adds a sense of danger to this mix.
Kidman told Monsters and Critics that working with the director “was a privilege. Truly, he’s a master of the craft. Because he had such a clear vision of where he wanted to take the film, I could relax as an actor. I still had to do my character development, of course, but he took all the members by the hand and showed us precisely what he wanted, instantly removing any fear we might have had about working with a director who doesn’t speak English.”
