Think you’ve got issues with your mom? Wait until you meet
India (Mia Wasikowska) and her mother Evie (Nicole Kidman) in Chan-Wook Park’s twisted
modern gothic horror thriller STOKER
. Premiering last week at the Sundance Film
Festival, you could hear the
proverbial pin drop as the audience sat on the edge of their seats, waiting to
see what depraved new shock was just around the corner.
And we were never
disappointed.

Written by actor Wentworth Miller, STOKER tells the story of a daughter still reeling from the accidental death of her father, and further alienated from her mother after the arrival of Charlie (Matthew Goode), the uncle she never knew existed who is now insinuating himself into every part of their lives, his presence at once repellent and perversely appealing. Taking this Hitchcockian turn is
an interesting career move for the Korean director known for his critically
acclaimed OLDBOY –  especially as his first foray into English-language filmmaking when
he doesn’t speak the language. And how did that work for the actors?

“Well, strangely enough it wasn’t that hard,” says Nicole at
the after party in Sundance.  “When I did
THE OTHERS I worked with a Spanish director, Alejandro Amenabar, who doesn’t
really speak that much English. He speaks a lot more now but when I worked with
him he had minimal English. And with director Park he doesn’t speak any English
but he has a fantastic translator.  That
was probably my biggest fear. Was I going to be able to understand the nuances
because a lot of directing is nuances. Within the first day, that was gone
because he’s able to communicate very clearly and he has such a vivid, strong
imagination and obviously he’s so well educated and his film knowledge is
extraordinary. He just makes you feel like he’s got you by the hand and it’s
all going to be fine. That’s a wonderful feeling as an actor because you are
able to then help color in his palette. He knows exactly what he wants – from
the color of your hair, the color of your skin, what you’re wearing, what prop you’re
using, what jewelry, everything, he chooses it all.”

About her taste for unconventional characters, she laughs, “I
grew up reading a lot and I grew up with a strong fantasy life and it’s not
always well behaved, my fantasy life – which I think is important in
film-making. You can’t always choose things that are going to just be sugar
coated, you know. Life isn’t sugar coated. People in life that we meet,
stories, all of the it – there’s different motivations for different things and
there’s ways in which the journey of life is very light and dark. There’s
the shadow self as well and I think that’s always important to explore because
it makes us realize that as human beings we are flawed even though we’re aiming
towards something good, most of the time our natures tend to be flawed.“  Flawed? Nicole and Mia take that benign adjective to a whole
new creepy level in Stoker. Watch for it.
