Mia Wasikowska Has A Lot Of Shoes In New Images From Park Chan-Wook's 'Stoker'

With Park City now left to the ski bunnies hitting the slopes before it all melts away, the Sundance Film Festival is fading into memory. But one movie that continues to generate chatter is Park Chan-Wook's "Stoker." The bottom line is, you're either with the highly stylized and somewhat over-the-top melodrama....or you're not, and there doesn't seem to be much middleground. Indeed, our own man at the fest was decidedly not a fan, calling the whole endeavor "a garish misfire." But the rest of us will be able to make our own assessment in just a few weeks.

With Park City now left to the ski bunnies hitting the slopes before it all melts away, the Sundance Film Festival is fading into memory. But one movie that continues to generate chatter is Park Chan-Wook's "Stoker." The bottom line is, you're either with the highly stylized and somewhat over-the-top melodrama....or you're not, and there doesn't seem to be much middleground. Indeed, our own man at the fest was decidedly not a fan, calling the whole endeavor "a garish misfire." But the rest of us will be able to make our own assessment in just a few weeks.

And until then, some new images have arrived, providing a further peek into the world created by "Prison Break" star and screenwriter Wentworth Miller. The trio of Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode lead the movie that centers on the teenage India, whose father tragically passes away, and finds her dealing with the sudden appearance of Uncle Charlie, whose polite exterior hides something potentially far more sinister.

If anything, the film looks like it will have more than one wallpaper worthy image. So take a look below and mark your calendar for March 1st.
