Soooo excited! I’m a huge fan of Kusama’s work, along with Hay and Manfredi (highly recommend The Invitation), so I’m sure this is going to be amazing.
Also here for Nicole destroying her competition and winning Oscar #2August 21, 2018 at 11:04 am #1202613712

This is going to LFF, screening in competition:
Nicole Kidman is astonishing, and almost unrecognisable, in Karyn Kusama’s (The Invitation, LFF 2015) brooding thriller Destroyer. Kidman plays Erin, a jaded police detective haunted by her past and still reeling from the trauma of her experience years later, who is forced to confront her demons in order to close the case that almost destroyed her. The film also stars Sebastian Stan, Tatiana Maslany and Toby Kebbell.August 29, 2018 at 1:44 pm #1202619517
This is giving me Monster teas.September 1, 2018 at 12:59 pm #1202621306

Is this the best performance of Kidman’s career? It very well might be. That alone is a reason to see “Destroyer.” But there are other reasons, including the film’s crackling action sequences and suspense.September 1, 2018 at 6:29 pm #1202621442

Finally an oscar nomination for the right roleSeptember 1, 2018 at 11:19 pm #1202621520September 2, 2018 at 12:04 am #1202621534
Okay so Nicole Kidman for Best Actress is now confirmed.
Maybe she will have both the leading and supporting role nominations this year!
It’s a fantastic year for her career.September 2, 2018 at 7:21 am #1202621696
Kidman as a double nominee shotguns her past the five nods club. And securing four lead nods with one win is a big deal.
