India. Come meet your Uncle Charlie. I incest insist.
[The poster says it all doesn’t it?]
Stoker is a tight mystery that burns with sensuality while revealing a dark story, Hitchcock-style. 17-year-old India (Mia Wasikowska) is devastated when her father Richard (Dermot Mulroney) is killed in a car crash. Her father was her prince and they often went on hunting trips together.
When her Uncle Charlie (Mathew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her unstable mother (Nicole Kidman), she comes to suspect this mysterious and charming man has ulterior motives. India soon develops a crush on Charlie and become increasingly infatuated with him. He seems to be the only one in the world left who understands her. Part paternal longing, part sexual craving, India wants to get closer to Uncle Charlie, despite her discovery of his dark past.
