3:00 showtime: Psychological Thriller "Stoker" w/Nicole Kidman; dinner at Boscos

3:00 showtime. PARKING is in Belcourt Parking lot behind the movie theater.

"'Stoker' [is] a splendidly demented gumbo of Hitchcock thriller [and] Gothic fairy tale"--Variety.

"A high creep-out factor and top drawer cast"--Hollywood Reporter

SYNOPSIS:

"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, Evelyn.

Soon after his arrival, India begins to suspect this mysterious, charming man has disturbing ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, the friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him."

*His name and the script are an homage to Hitchcock: Remember Uncle Charlie in "Shadow of a Doubt"?

From Belcourt Site:

"Featuring a gasp-inducing performance from Nicole Kidman, STOKER is a haunting, Hitchcockian tale as unsettling as it is stunning...."

"Armed with an inspired script, a world-class cast, and a wickedly playful nature, [the director] subverts audience expectations by employing delightful visual trickery and placing a magnet over the moral compass of the film, giving complex and sympathetic motivations for the characters’ violent actions.

"Visionary filmmaker Park Chan-Wook, whose OLDBOY and THREE... EXTREMES both played at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005, returns with another macabre story, one that marks his first venture into English-language cinema." (Sundance Festival Guide)

CAST:

Mia Wasikowski; Matthew Goode; Nicole Kidman; Jacki Weaver; Dermot Mulroney; Alden Ehrenreich

Dinner at Boscos after the film. Feel free to come even if you only can stay for drinks.

    Intriguing touches from various Hitchcock films sprinkled throughout a very thought provoking, eerie film. Very enlightening to hear others' insights since this is a very intricate film

    Still looking forward to it! Nicole does some great work. Dogville, for example, was extraordinary. I like that she takes on dodgier films. Really cool.

    Just saw the trailer today at Belcourt. Looks messed up (good) :-P
    Wish I could've gone with you all to Amour, did today and enjoyed it. Lots to think about.
