We have seen Nicole Kidman play a number of different roles, but we’ve never seen her quite like this.
In the cop thriller ‘Destroyer‘ Kidman plays LAPD detective Erin Bell, “who gets thrown back into the memories of her dark past after a gang leader from a previous case that ended in tragedy re-emerges years later.”
Kidman is nearly unrecognizable in this role, and we’re not just talking about her look. Even her attitude, the way she walks…it’s all different. She really lost herself for this movie.
IndieWire’s Eric Kohn praised her performance…
“Her versatility is often the center of any movie in which she stars, but she hasn’t burrowed this deep into her material since ‘Birth,’ She transforms herself into such a vivid creature of discontent that it’s a wonder she doesn’t swing for these extremes more often.”
I feel like Kidman is at the top of her game right now. You can check out the trailer for ‘Destroyer’ below. It’ll be released inside select theaters Christmas 2018.
