The Belcourt Theatre will host a screen of Nicole Kidman’s latest movie “Destroyer” followed by a Q&A on January 11.
“Destroyer” follows the moral and existential odyssey of LAPD detective Erin Bell (Nicole Kidman) who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the gang’s remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.
Director Karyn Kusama breaks cinematic ground in “Destroyer” with a detective who’s every bit as tough, brooding and brash as her male counterparts. Aided by Julie Kirkwood’s arresting photography, Kusama guides us through streets and neighborhoods that feel as authentic as the complex, non-traditional characters that inhabit them.
Belcourt members had an opportunity to buy tickets before the general public. If any tickets remain, they will go on sale to the general public January 7 at 10 a. Find ticket information here.
