Trivia:
At their first meeting to discuss her role in this film, director Chan-wook Park gave Mia Wasikowska a copy of John Everett Millais's 1851 picture The Bridesmaid: a lurid triangle of golden curls gushing from her face, dark eyes upturned with loaded expectation. He also gave her a stone statue of a jaguar: "to signify the predator motif he wanted to bring to the film".See more »

Quotes:
[first lines]
India Stoker:My ears hear what others cannot hear; small faraway things people cannot normally see are visible to me. These senses are the fruits of a lifetime of longing, longing to be rescued, to be completed. Just as the skirt needs the wind to billow, I'm not formed by things that are of myself alone...

Disturbing and beautiful, 24 May 2013
Author: LifeVsArt from United States

"Stoker" is a beautiful, twisted, hypnotic trance - it's meant for an audience not overly concrete in it's thinking but who have an open imagination and are able to take the plunge into the darkly poetic vision of it's director. "Stoker" doesn't exist in a normal, everyday reality - it's more of an alternative dream reality, hyper-aware and sexually charged. The three principle actors are superb, but Mia Wasikowska really gives the film a beating heart, as she emerges from her innocence into her latent self - a mesmerizing performance. This movie is filled with images that are as disturbing as they are lyrical and open to endless interpretation (along with a subversive wit). I've seen the film multiple times and find that my impressions change with each viewing and that it has really haunted my imagination. "Stoker" is one of those unique and mysterious masterpieces that I'm sure I will be returning to frequently over the years - there's much to drink in, as the well runs deep.
