Park Chan-wook, the director of the totally weird, Cannes 2004 Grand Prix winner Oldboy, has, like so many before him, moved to Hollywood. From the looks of the atmospheric trailer for his first American movie, it's about family values...or spiders...or, in some perverse way, love.
Tickets are available at Arclight's website. I'm in N22.
Dinner after the movie at the Arclight Cafe.
After India's (Wasikowska's) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
