Storyline Heading
India Stoker was not prepared to lose her father and best friend Richard in a tragic auto accident. The solitude of her woodsy family estate, the peace of her tranquil town, and the unspoken somberness of her home life are suddenly upended by not only this mysterious accident, but by the sudden arrival of her Uncle Charlie, whom she never knew existed. When Charlie moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evie, India thinks the void left by her father's death is finally being filled by his closet bloodline. Soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect that this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives. Yet instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless young woman becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - This is a dark, creepy, violent, arty thriller in the vein of director Park Chan-Wook's work in his native Korea. This is strictly for adults, particularly those with a taste for offbeat fare. Fans of the three leads should enjoy this showcase for them. Bloody violence, sexual content including some incestuous themes, make this definitely inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good The chilling and stylish and aggressively creepy "Stoker" begins at the end and takes us on a shocking and lurid journey before we land right where we started, now seeing every small detail through a different lens. It's disturbingly good.

NY Post Full Review
Good Sure, it's got its horror aspects. But for my money, this movie belongs alongside "Secretary," "Ginger Snaps" and "Thirteen" in the family of deliciously dark female coming-of-age stories.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) loses her beloved father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in a tragic auto accident on her 18th birthday, her quiet life on the family's secluded estate is suddenly shattered. Exquisitely sensitive, India's exhibits an impassive demeanor which masks the deep feelings and heightened senses that only her father understood.

India finds herself drawn to her father's long-lost brother, Charlie (Matthew Goode), who unexpectedly arrives for the funeral and decides to stay on with her and her emotionally unstable mother, Evie (Nicole Kidman). While India initially mistrusts her charming but mysterious uncle, he fascinates her as well, and she begins to realize how much they have in common.

As Charlie reveals himself to her little by little, India becomes increasingly infatuated with her charismatic relative and comes to realize that his arrival is no coincidence. With her uncle to guide her, she is about to fulfill her unusual destiny.
