Nicole Kidman Talks STOKER and Playing Screen Icon Grace Kelly in GRACE OF MONACO

     February 25, 2013


Stoker marks the latest in a long line of risky independent pictures for the enduringly talented and ageless Nicole Kidman.  The Paperboy, Rabbit Hole, Margot at the Wedding, Birth – Kidman isn’t afraid to take a chance on risky material or art-house filmmakers. In Stoker, Kidman co-stars as Evelyn, the neglectful mother to India, a weird and troubled girl.  Evelyn doesn’t know what to make of her daughter – her own flesh and blood a stranger even to herself.  After her husband suddenly dies, Evelyn finds herself drawn to her husband’s long-thought-lost brother Charlie, unaware that her brother-in-law only has eyes for her daughter.

In the following interview with Kidman, she discusses her favorite Hitchcock films, working with as meticulous a filmmaker as Park Chan Wook and playing screen icon Grace Kelly in the upcoming Grace of Monaco. For the full interview, hit the jump.
