Park Chan-wook's Hollywood debut "Stoker" will serve as the closing film of the 42nd International Film Festival Rotterdam on Feb. 2, the festival's organizing committee announced on its website Wednesday (local time). The festival will run from Wednesday to Feb. 3.
"Park has won many awards, including the Alfred Bauer Award of the Berlin film festival for 'I'm a Cyborg' in 2007 and the jury prize of the Cannes film festival for 'Oldboy' in 2004 and 'Thirst' in 2009," the website noted.
"Stoker," a psychological thriller starring Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman, is based on a script written by "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller. It revolves around what happens to a girl after her father dies on her 18th birthday, as she goes to live with her mother and an uncle she never knew existed suddenly turns up.
It is scheduled to be released here on Feb. 28.
