Jonathan Glazer follows up his debut, Sexy Beast, with his new film Birth, teaming with Academy AwardŽ winner Nicole Kidman for a metaphysical love story that explores the space between what we know and what we feel. Kidman stars as Anna, a delicate young widow who is on the verge of a new life when a solemn little boy appears, claiming to be the reincarnation of her dead husband. As Anna, Kidman achieves a breathtaking emotional transparency to portray an intelligent woman who discovers another side of herself in the face of a bizarre, yet tantalizing possibility. The actress is paired with Canadian child actor Cameron Bright, who portrays the boy interloper. Birth is part romance, part mystery, and part family drama - woven into a whole about love, mortality and the unknown.
I think you'll find more profound thought in the average Simpsons episode than this. Kidman all dogmatic again. Sounds tacky.
