We could really use a good movie from Nicole Kidman. This year she starred in the terribly reviewed “Before I Go To Sleep,” the forgettable “The Railway Man,” and her Cannes opener “Grace Of Monaco” was savaged by critics. Her next gig? “Paddington.” Thankfully, “Strangerland” holds some promise and the haunting first teaser trailer has arrived.
Co-starring Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes, the story follows a couple whose relationship is pushed to its breaking point after their two teenage children disappear into the outback. Penned by Fiona Seres and Michael Kinirons, Kim Farrant (documentary “Naked on the Inside,” Australian TV show “Rush”) makes her feature debut on the project. And frankly, this looks like the kind of gritty, no frills movie Kidman needs to bounce back with. We’re crossing our fingers that the moodiness on display adds up to something memorable.
