WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Erin Bell (Kidman) is an LAPD detective who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the Californian desert with tragic results that still haunt her to this day. When the murderous leader of that gang, Silas (Kebbell), re-emerges after many years, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her deeply troubled history with them if she is to finally make peace with her demons…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Nicole Kidman is utterly astonishing in a role that’s unlike anything she’s played before, where she’s virtually unrecognisable and doing things that only an actress like her could have the balls to do.
