Review: This is one story about a family that is not wholesome. It is a sensual thriller that reminds me of Basic Instinct. It was artistically done without surprise since it is from Fox Searchlight. Fox Searchlight has produced art film types of movies and Stoker is just one example added to that list.
Mia Wasikowska is such a revelation in this movie. You can never expect her do this movie because her last movie was Alice In Wonderland. You cannot also expect Matthew Goode involve in movies like these. His previous movie targeted the juvenile audience.
Although Nicole Kidman is part of the movie, her character was not the movie's focus but Mia's character, India, and she already graduated to motherly roles even with her credentials.
