Product description

Product Description

From celebrated Korean director Chan-wook Park (Lady Vengeance, Oldboy), comes his first English-language film starring Nicola Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode. After India’s father dies in an auto accident, her uncle Charlie, whom she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother. Soon after his arrival, India begins to suspect that this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

From Amazon.co.uk

Stoker is a masterful psychodrama that teems with unsettling vibrations that hark directly back to Alfred Hitchcock, but also to the wave of contemporary cinema that has been surging in South Korea for the past decade. It is the first American feature by the auteur Park Chan-wook, whose widely seen trilogy of "revenge" films, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, and Lady Vengeance, paved the way for the meticulous craftsmanship of Stoker. The inspiration for Wentworth Miller's haunting script was Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, though Stoker makes for an altogether creepier tale of a mysterious uncle, his melancholy niece, and the deadly interplay of family secrets slowly revealed. Park's delicate weaving of style transforms the material into a narrative symphony, with thematic elements conveyed in the smallest details of composition, art direction, and graceful cinematography. Mia Wasikowska is India Stoker, the teenage niece who just lost her father to a violent auto accident. It's a complete surprise to India and her mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman) when his handsome younger brother Charlie (Matthew Goode) shows up at the brooding family mansion (itself a character that is integral to the story). Charlie's enigmatic smirk signals both calm and danger, and his presence is a catalyst that ratchets up the emotional turmoil India and Evelyn are already experiencing. India senses the danger even as she is drawn to Charlie, and her mother's repressed sexuality turns into a bonfire under his mysterious charm. He tempts and teases them both in an expertly choreographed dance of menace that fuels the rage building in India and puts further pressure on her mother's cataclysmic despair. Charlie's psychopathic presence infests the brooding, yet deceptively airy surroundings of the Stoker estate with a sense of peril that is just out of reach. Several key scenes unfold at the family dinner table, where poison lurks in Freudian undercurrents and maybe in the food and wine, too. The most mesmerising sequence captures a visit from the sheriff, who's investigating the murder of one of India's schoolmates. The crime is just one of many acts of deadly violence that erupt with jarring force in the past, present, and future of Stoker's disturbing timeline. As the sheriff talks to India and Charlie, the camera swirls around to the rhythm of the scene, separating, uniting, then retreating from them in a virtuosic room-to-room sweep. The extended take says much more about the interplay of India and Charlie's dread connection than the oblique dialogue. It's also a breathtaking illustration of Park's obsessive attention to shot design. But Stoker is much more than an exercise in style; it is also an unnerving and understated thriller that gives big rewards for all that attention to detail. To say that there are plot twists is an understatement for a movie whose elegant creativity is the biggest twist of all. --Ted Fry

Park Chan-wook's first Hollywood film shows that he's not about to join the mainstream. Part gothic family drama, part Hitchcock thriller, the film is a subtle, intimate character study of a peculiar family.

Now first thing's first. If you haven't sen the film, watch it knowing as little as possible.

Still here? Okay. This movie is a feast for the eyes and the ears - the score and final song and elegant, and the use of sound is effective at portraying the world of someone who's senses are suprsensitive. It all adds to the effective double-mystery of both India and the creepy but suave Uncle Charlie. The film hints throughout - eveb the title "Stoker" has many wondering if this is about vampires. It reminds me of a series of stories Ray Bradbury wrote about a strange family where they all had weird powers. The answer when it comes is perfect - a bit gothic melodrama, but then that fits with the mood as a whole.

Not that it's without its flaws. The screenplay is a little clunky. The story itself is cracking but occasionally the dialogue is a bit wooden (though the actors mainly overcome this). Worst is the unnecessary exchange between Kidman and the aunt about Richard ("your husband, my nephew"). Some characters (all the teenage boys) suffer as a result of being sketchily written. And there are occasions (I'm thinking especially "letters") when an intriguing revelation is almost immediately followed by another that twists things around. These twists are good, but it's a shame the movie doesn't let these little timebombs sit for longer before revealing themselves as they could turn everything on their heads.

But these are minor quibbles. The direction, look and excellent performances bring a depth to the story that elevates this into a striking film.

A bit pretentious in places, I get what its trying to be, but its just well what it is, a decent psychologal thriller that is derivative of Hitchcock, but which is cleaner, fresher and more picteresque. It paints from a large pallete, and the performances are very good all round. It just seems a little stiff in places, and sort of digresses from what it really wants to say, perhaps to many voices going into the process.

Worth a watch if you like simple psychological teasers, and a relaxing but tort picture, that doesnt insult or assault the senses. It is just neat and tidy, maybe too much.

Beautiful to look at. Every scene is really well crafted. The three central performances are good in a weird way - particularly Matthew Goode as the unhinged but sexy uncle Charlie. You can see the fixed smile is hiding something really dark inside. The music is stunningly good - I saw this ages ago and the music still goes round in my head. The whole film is strangely haunting. An odd one - but definitely worth watching more than once.

Surprisingly good film, watch Nicole Kidman being desperate and needy in a sad and disturbing way. Great main characters. I enjoyed the sound track a lot.

Can I just use three words to describe it?

It certainly held my interest. It's one of those films that leave you bereft at the end but you're not quite sure why. Brilliant acting from Mia.

By For Tomorrow 24 TOP 500 REVIEWER on 29 Sept. 2015
Format: DVD
2013's elegant 'Stoker' is a beautiful and twisted British-American psychological thriller. With it's highly lush visuals, setting and camera work, it dramatizes the infatuation recently made fatherless India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska), a young woman has with killing, and the sudden appearance of a seemingly charming estranged uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who apparently shares the same interest with her.

Like a gothic fairy-tale, I found the Hitchcock-isque 'Stoker' to be very easy to follow and understand. The story unfolds slowly, but it didn't take me very long to find myself intrigued by the dark and mysterious goings on. If you enjoy wonderfully dark, and thought provoking movies, designed to make you think rather than shoving fast action sequences in your face, then you may find this one as enjoyable as I did. With excellent performances from the actors portraying the unusual Stoker family, Nicole Kidman as the seemingly emotionless mother also makes up the cast.

On the DVD, there is a wealth of bonus features, including deleted scenes, featurettes, the trailer, and the option of subtitles for the hard-of-hearing.

This is an intriguing stylised thriller which demonstrates admirable Hitchcockian qualities. This may be a homage to the great director but Park Chan-Wook’s film is a superbly enjoyable drama as camera angles and film score create a haunting and menacing tone to the narrative. Mia Wasikowska is excellent as India Stoker, an intelligent troubled young woman who is grieving for her recently deceased father. When her handsome and charming uncle moves into the house with her mother and herself after years of travelling around Europe she gradually discovers some dark family secrets. This is a coming of age movie with a vengeance, as India finally acknowledges her true nature, with the help of her ‘uncle Charlie’.

There is something to be said about style over substance, especially when something is as stylish as `Stoker', but when it comes down to it, this is a pretty façade without much going on underneath. This is a film that also stars Nicola Kidman, an actress who has sometimes been criticised for her icy exterior and indeed she does personify the film, although she is not the main character. That falls to Mia Wasikowska as India Stoker, a disturbed young woman who after, the death of her father, retreats even further into herself. When her uncle arrives to comfort the family he brings with him an air of sinister mystery.

Visually, director Chan-wook Park has done an excellent job with `Stoker'; there are some great scenes that bleed into one another. The cinematography and colours are immense; really highlighting that BluRay is the option for this film. However, it all feels too aloof and flat. Story wise, scriptwriter Wentworth Miller talked of Hitchcock as an inspiration and there is more than a touch of `Shadow of a Doubt' about this film, but whilst that film had thrills and warmth, `Stoker' is a little too cold for comfort. When you are supposed to be siding with India, it is hard to do so when she is not that likable, you are left in a sort of limbo with no one really to like.

Enter Matthew Goode as Charles. He may be the catalyst for change and disturbing events, but he is also the most impressive presence on screen. With a plot that is more mood than depth, he is able to give some depth just by acting well. Wasikowska and Kidman are not able to do the same. The film is meant to be cold, icy and aloof - in this is succeeds, but it also makes it slightly less watchable than it should be and a little slow in places.
