Movie buffs gathered at the Eccles Theatre in Park City, Utah on Sunday, January 21st for the world premiere of the horror film Stoker, starring actress Nicole Kidman as an emotionally unstable widow and mother named Evie, fellow Australian actress Mia Wasikowska as her daughter India, and actor Matthew Goode as long lost Uncle Charlie who moves in with the family after India’s father Robert (played by Dermot Mulroney) passes away unexpectedly in a car accident.

The film which was directed by Chan-Wook Park was the “driving force” behind Nicole Kidman’s eagerness to star in the film. She told reporters “He’s a master as any filmmaker will tell you, and I love working with unusual filmmakers. And really, he’s meticulous, and I think that’s what you’ll see in the film.”

Kidman who has been absent from the famed annual film festival for “many years” stated “it’s good to be back. I love small film festivals that give films a shot.”

Actress Mia Wasikowska who plays Nicole’s daughter India in the film had this to say about working with Nicole, “Well, she, coming and being an actress from Australia is such a role model for anyone my age (from Australia), so to be able to work with her was pretty amazing. She’s just so open, kind, and warm, and sweet. And basically just really open and willing. Very protective and kind.”

The film which received rave reviews at the Sundance world premiere will hit theaters across the country on March 1, 2013.
