Although Kim Ji-woon delivers his actioner The Last Stand next week, we’re technically getting another Hollywood debut from a talented South Korean director this month, as Fox Searchlight is gearing up for a Sundance premiere for the latest from Oldboy helmer Park Chan-wook. We’ve seen a pair of unsettling, but fun, trailers for the dark family drama Stoker, and after an original track from Emily Wells popped online, we’ve now got our first listen at the score.
From Clint Mansell, who delivered the legendary score for The Fountain, as well as many other Darren Aronofsky projects, the track In Full Bloom is a stirring, piano-heavy piece that has us ever more intrigued at the full score. We’ve also got the full tracklist from Film Music Reporter, which places this piece towards the end of the film. With a script from Prison Break star Wentworth Miller, check it out below for the film starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, Jacki Weaver and Dermot Mulroney.
