Slow moving & hard to watch, but not a bad movie with one of the best performances by Kidman I have ever seen. I say B-
"Are we bad parents? Did I do something wrong?" Catherine (Kidman) and Matthew (Fiennes) are a normal, boring couple living in Australia. When Catherine wakes up one morning to find her two children are missing her world is rocked. They feel the police are not doing enough and take it upon themselves to look for them. When past history is revealed no one can be trusted. This is a very difficult movie to watch. The acting by Kidman is Oscar worthy and everyone else does hold their own against her. On the other hand the subject is gut wrenching and the movie is a little slow moving. It does keep you watching and interested though, both to see the end and for Kidman's performance. This is a good movie but nothing you can watch over and over and also one you really have to be in the mood for. Worth seeing for her acting if for no other reason. Overall, slow moving and hard to watch, but not a bad movie with one of the best performances by Kidman I have ever seen. I give this a B-.
