I was just sending word from a friend of mine who actually has seen the film and says that her performance is phenomenal and next-level. I’m passing along substantiated audience reaction to help inform our early predictions. He was using the Monster comparison to describe Kidman’s physical transformation, not the content of the performance.
Going back into exile again now.
Flipp, sorry if I offended you, I didn't mean too. My comment about mugging was aimed at those Theron/Monster comparisons which a number of critics have made and which I hope don't turn out to be the case for me when I ever get to view the film. To be honest this sounds more promising than Monster and whilst I'm no fan of Kidman I'll take her any day over Theron. Having only seen stills of Kidman I don't see the level of 'transformation' beyond hairstyle and weathered skin. By all accounts Kidman gives a performance unlike anything she has done before.
Just hope its not a repeat of Theron/Monster or Oldman/Darkest Hour type of work and is in fact something more ethereal.
