Two packages waited for me today, there was no sending address and I wasn't anticipating anything in the mail. Inside the first package was little box with a black ribbon wrapped around, once opened there was a key.
Confused, I grab the second parcel. Package number two was also a box, but what was enclosed was far more revealing. A pencil box with the visage of India (Mia Wasikowska) inside. The central protagonist of Chan-wook Park's Stoker is naturally grim and while we know the pencil comes into play during the film's nastier moments, the key is a mystery.
After India's father dies, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her unstable mother (Nicole Kidman). She comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives and becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
I would like to thank Fox Searchlight for definitely one of the coolest moments I've experienced as head of Never Mind Pop Film. Very much appreciated.
Stoker hits theatres in wide release on March 22nd!
