One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
Destroyer follows the moral and existential odyssey of LAPD detective Erin Bell who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. 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.

Erin Bell is a brutal character that is driven with revenge, she can't seem to fix the world around her and she's not even trying to fix herself. Nicole Kidman (who is unrecognizable other than her tall frame) gives one of her greatest performances yet. Her chemistry with Sebastian Stan is fantastic and makes you understand why she is where she is now. The way she goes about solving the crime in this noir-thriller, is unrelenting, she is a character that is trying to do right by her child, but is so lost she doesn't know how. While you shouldn't feel bad for her character, you do, because Nicole is that. good. Big props to Karyn Kasuma, great direction, and the ending of this film is beautifully shot and completely heartbreaking. Overall a good thriller and a powerhouse performance by Ms. Kidman, a female director and female cinematographer - showing women can be strong, complicated, messed-up, and still filled with utter passion. see this one, so we can get more movies like this.
