Nicole Kidman’s new movie is the least Nicole Kidman

The film, which has Kidman playing both the young and risk-taking undercover cop and the emaciated shell of a person she has become, is a classic LA noir in the tradition of Chinatown and Heat’that also offers’a fresh take on the genre, thanks to a central character whose choices and motivations are inextricably tied up with her gender.

Karyn, your husband and his writing partner scripted Destroyer, but you had a lot of input into its creation, is that right?I’m really lucky to be working with Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi for the third time on this film, and because we have created such a circle of trust I was let into the process when they were outlining. It gave me more opportunity to talk about my aesthetic and emotional and creative priorities with them.
