Today we go down under to celebrate an Aussie Icon (who was actually born in Hawaii!): Nicole Kidman! To discuss the tall, blonde wonder we have our good friend, Nicole expert, and Melbourne-based film critic Glenn Dunks! Our B-Sides today include: Birthday Girl, Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus, Australia, and Destroyer.
Conor, Glenn, and I dish on what it is exactly that makes Nicole Kidman so good (spoiler alert: it’s talent), how she’s tried to navigate the rather reductive cultural opinion that she only plays cold and calculating characters, and if she’ll ever leave the world of David E. Kelley-produced limited television series’ to make another horror masterpiece like The Others.
