Stoker, Park Chan-wook’s (Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance) newest film, stars Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman. The film revolves around India (Wasikowska), whose father dies in an auto accident. Her Uncle Charlie (Goode), whom she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Kidman). Soon after Charlie’s 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.
Clint Mansell (Black Swan, The Fountain, Requiem for A Dream,), one of the most innovative and exciting contemporary composers and longtime collaborator of Darren Aronosfky, provides a striking score that both highlights and heightens the themes throughout the film.
Renowned composer Philip Glass, responsible for some of the most compelling works of the last forty years, contributes an original piano piece.
One-woman orchestral/electronic tour-de-force Emily Wells contributes the original song Becomes the Color in addition to a collaborative track with Mansell. The soundtrack is rounded out with Summer Wine by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood.
