When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.Written by
Nicole Kidman's immersion in her role as Erin Bell took weeks, even months to wear off;"I'd find myself shuffling and I'd ask myself why and oh because Erin's still there." See more »
In scene where Kidman sits on town wall to talk to her daughter, Shelby's boyfriend (Toby), as shot changes between his and her look at one another, passers by in background do not match: first striped clothing woman walking towards them, from Toby P.o.V. to Kidman, approaching, back to instant Kidman P.o.V. of Toby, she is already walking away: next, blue-suited man with briefcase walking past Toby (from Kidman P.o.V.): next shot of Kidman, he does not pass: two further shot changes, one to Toby, then back to Kidman (some minute+ passing) and suddenly, now there he having passed by in background to Kidman.

Nicole Kidman is the star!!
Nicole Kidman is an absolute beast in this movie. Her performance in Destroyer is truly enthralling, and quite frankly, the highlight of the entire picture. She submerges herself in the character both physically and emotionally. You can easily feel her pain and bleak persona. Even her joyous moments- as scarse as they are- were well interpreted by Kidman.
The movie is a fine movie, at least to me, though many don't feel that way. It is a must-see.
