Nicole Kidman 'Can't Wait to Watch Life Tear You Apart' in Clip from 'Stoker'

Is it too early to count Kidman as part of the 2014 Oscar race?

Nicole Kidman in StokerA clip from Chan-wook Park's Stoker has come online featuring Nicole Kidman in a single take as she delivers a nearly two-minute speech getting to the core of her character and it is not only menacing, but makes me wonder if we're looking at potential Oscar caliber work in this film.

Stoker hits theaters on March 1 and a film managing to remain part of the conversation all year isn't common, but perhaps the combination of her nearly-nominated performance in The Paperboy this year and Stoker's proximity to the Oscars this year may help a little.

Here's the film's synopsis followed by the clip:

After India's (Mia Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

There's no mistaking this is a film from the director of Oldboy and the rest of the Vengeance Trilogy.

Stoker was #18 on my list of the Top 50 Most Anticipated Movies of 2013.

    Hey Mr. Brevet you gonna be checking out Sundance? What films you gonna be checking out. I hope you give us a review for The Way, Way Back.

      And hopefully you can check out Mud this time around also man. Hope McConaughey can finally get some big award recognition this year (Oscars or even Globes) after a strong and underrated year imo.

    That was chilling. Never felt so riveted by a Kidman dialogue since The Others.

    • Stiggy

      That's a subtle way of hamming it up Kidman!

    I only just recently checked out Chan-wook Park's Oldboy, and thought it was excellent. Really looking forward to this one.

  • Megan

    Nicole Kidman is my favorite actress.

    Yeah I'm going to have to start avoiding clips for this one all around. Looks great. Think it might be my favourite film this year. Not excited about anything else as much as I am about this.
