Directed by Lars von Trier
Nicole Kidman is on the run in Depression-era America.
She takes refuge in a small mining town. Sanctuary is short-lived, though,
as the town slowly turns on her. Using the barest essentials - a minimalist
set on a near-blank soundstage with few props, von Trier masterfully evokes
the beauty, horror and rage born from her stay and creates a powerful
statement on man's lack of humanity. Also stars Paul Bettany, Stellan
Skarsgard, Lauren Bacall, Blair Brown, Patricia Clarkson, Jeremy Davies, Ben
Gazzara, Chloe Sevigny and Philip Baker Hall, with narration by John Hurt.
