Kidman Is Mommy Not-so-Dearest in 'Stoker' Trailer


It’s a family affair in Park Chan-wook’s  thriller, Stoker.

We all know Nicole Kidman can play cold and sadistic, she just looks like an evil stepmother,  but the Stoker trailer far surpasses expectations.

Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance director Park Chan-wook delivers an unsettling look at a family whose patriarch died under mysterious circumstances. Kidman plays the cruel mother to Mia Wasikowska’s disturbed India Stoker. Matthew Goode is the seductively twisted Uncle Charlie, who, according to an interview with writer Wentworth Miller (yes, that Wentworth Miller) was inspired by Shadow of a Doubt.

Most menacing lines in the trailer: “She's of age." "Of age for what?" "You have no idea." Whatever it is, you can believe it's not going to be good.
