“You can be better than me”

As a young cop starting out, detective Erin Bell (Nicole Kidman) was placed undercover to infiltrate a group of criminals in the California desert — with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must confront her own traumatic history to reckon with the demons that destroyed her past. From director Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, Jennifer’s Body), this is a twist-laden existential odyssey following one woman’s complex journey towards moral resolution through the sun-bleached terrain of Los Angeles. With an incredible central performance from Kidman, Destroyer offers a visceral portrait of a life ground down by trauma, consumed by remorse and fired by latent anger.

“A raw, riveting revelation. [Kidman gives] a smart and utterly absorbing performance” — The Guardian
