    • Nicole Kidman gives the best performance of her career to date in director Gus Van Sant's brilliantly acerbic satire on fame and the American Dream. This is the film Kidman should have won the Oscar for.

      Kidman plays a shallow, suburban princess, whose entire life has been devoted to becoming a television celebrity. Trouble is, husband Matt Dillon keeps getting in the way of her grandiose plans, so he has to be eliminated.

      Sharply scripted by Buck Henry from Joyce Maynard's bestselling novel, which was inspired by true events, this frighteningly funny, razor-sharp anecdote is easily Van Sant's most accessible movie. The director simply allows the riveting story to shine through above any extraneous style. Kidman, all pretty in pink lipstick and poisonous plans, is a revelation.

      Contains violence, swearing, sex, and drug abuse.
