Director Park Chan-wookYear 2013Genre(s) Thriller
India Stoker is a reclusive young artist with no friends at school due to her many peculiarities and idiosyncrasies. Her only friend is her father, and when he dies in a unexplained car accident she finds herself even more isolated as she is forced to stay with her unhinged mother Evie who shows her nothing but contempt. It isn't long before the mother and daughter are joined by India's uncle Charlie; a man whom India has never been told about before despite him being the brother of her beloved father. He is handsome, charming and mysterious and Evie wastes no time in falling in love with him - seeing him as a blessing since the death of her husband. Her contempt for her daughter increases, however, when she finds that Charlie has become much more interested in India and, although she initially suspects him of having dubious intentions, the interest is soon reciprocated when she becomes infatuated with his sinister games.
