  • Once relegated to decorative parts for years and long acknowledged as the wife of Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman spent the latter half of the 1990s and the first decade of the new millennium earning much-deserved critical respect. Standing a willowy 5'11" and sporting one of Hollywood's most distinctive heads of frizzy red hair, the Australian actress first entered the American mindset with her role opposite Cruise in Days of Thunder (1990), but it wasn't until she starred as a homicidal weather girl in Gus Van Sant's 1995 To Die For that she achieved recognition as a thespian of considerable range and talent. Though many assume that the heavily-accented Kidman hails from down under, she was actually born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 20, 1967, to Australian parents. Her family, who lived on the island because of a research project that employed Kidman's biochemist father, then moved to Washington, D.C. for the next three years. After her father's project reached completion, Nicole and her family returned to Australia.Raised in the upper-middle-class Sydney suburb of Longueville for the remainder of the 1970s and well into the eighties, Kidman grew up infused with a love of the arts, particularly dance and theatre. Kidman took refuge in the theater, and landed her first professional role at the age of 14, when she starred in Bush Christmas (1983), a TV movie about a group of kids who band together with an Aborigine to find their stolen horse. Brian Trenchard-Smith's BMX Bandits (1983) -- an adventure film/teen movie -- followed , with Kidman as the lead character, Judy; it opened to solid reviews. Kidman then worked for the gifted John Duigan (The Winter of Our Dreams, Romero) twice, first as one of the two adolescent leads of the Duigan-directed "Room to Move" episode of the Australian TV series Winners (1985) and, more prestigiously, as the star of Duigan's acclaimed miniseries Vietnam (1987).In 1988, Kidman got another major break when she was tapped to star in Phillip Noyce's Dead Calm (1989). A psychological thriller about a couple (Kidman and Sam Neill) who are terrorized by a young man they rescue from a sinking ship (Billy Zane), the film helped to establish the then-21-year-old Kidman as an actress of considerable mettle. That same year, her starring performance in the made-for-TV Bangkok Hilton further bolstered her reputation. By now a rising star in Australia, Kidman began to earn recognition across the Pacific. In 1989, Tom Cruise picked her for a starring role in her first American feature, Tony Scott's Days of Thunder (1990). The film, a testosterone-saturated drama about a racecar driver (Cruise), cast Kidman as the neurologist who falls in love with him. A sizable hit, it had the added advantage of introducing Kidman to Cruise, whom she married in December of 1990.Following a role as Dustin Hoffman's moll in Robert Benton's Billy Bathgate (1991), and a supporting turn as a snotty boarding school senior in the masterful Flirting (1991), which teamed her with Duigan a third time, Kidman collaborated with Cruise on their second film together, Far and Away (1992). Despite their joint star quality, gorgeous cinematography, and adequate direction by Ron Howard, critics panned the lackluster film.Kidman's subsequent projects, My Life and Malice ( both 1993), were similarly disappointing, despite scattered favorable reviews. Batman Forever (1995), in which she played the hero's love interest, Dr. Chase Meridian, fared somewhat better, but did little in the way of establishing Kidman as a serious actress even as it raked in mile-high returns at the summer box office. Kidman finally broke out of her window-dressing typecasting when Gus Van Sant enlisted her to portray the ruthless protagonist of To Die For (1995). Directed from a Buck Henry script, this uber-dark comedy casts Kidman as Suzanne Stone, a television broadcaster ready and eager to commit one homicide after another to propel herself to the top.

So, what you're saying is, this guy's a total wacko?

Exactly.He's obsessed with you. His only escape may be to purge the fixation.
Batman / Bruce Wayne
To kill me.
Dr. Chase Meridian
I think you understand obsession more than you let on.
Batman / Bruce Wayne
...... You have a thing for bats?
Dr. Chase Meridian
Oh that's a Rorschach Mr. Wayne, an ink blot, people see what they want. I think the question would be, do you have a thing for a bats?

Ada Monroe
I would have followed you anywhere... to Mongolia.
Ada Monroe
What we have lost will never be returned to us. The land will not heal - too much blood. All we can do is learn from the past and make peace with it.
Ada Monroe
My love, where are you? With no hope of reachin' you that I write to you... as I have always done.
Ada Monroe
Ruby, this fence may be the first thing I ever did that might produce an actual result.
Ada Monroe
I count the numbers of words that have passed between us, Inman and me - not very many. But I think about it.
Ada Monroe
Yesterday, I saw you walkin' back to me.
Ada Monroe
Inman. It is three years and I remember your name.

Alice Harford
Why do think Ziegler invites us to these things every year?
William Harford
This is what you get for making house calls.
Evelyn Stoker
India, who are you? You were supposed to love me, weren't you?
Evelyn Stoker
You know I've often wondered why it is we have children in the first place and the conclusion I've come to is at some point in our lives we realize things are, they're messed up beyond repair. So we decide to start again, wipe the slate clean, start fresh and we have children, little carbon copies we can turn to and say, you will do things I cannot. You will succeed where I have failed because we want someone to get it right this time. But not me, personally speaking I cannot wait to see life tear you apart.
Ada Monroe
I wouldn't go near that rooster if I was you. He's the devil I'm sure of it. He's Lucifer himself.
Ruby Thewes
Why I depise a floggin' rooster.
Evelyn Stoker
Personally speaking, i can't wait to watch life tear you apart.
Evelyn Stoker

Ruby Thewes
Why I despise a flogging rooster!
Katherine
[about Ian] Devlin, I gotta tell you, last night, with the ass grab of the coconut, a little bit of the red flag.
Devlin Adams
I've seen him do that with the soap.
Gillian Owens
He wants me, just me. Everyone would be safe. Just let him take me.
Sally Owens
Don't die on me, Gilly please, 'cause we're supposed to die together, at the same time. You promised me that, and this is not that day.
Gillian Owens
Do you forgive our mother?
Sally Owens
Sometimes.
Gillian Owens
Well, you'll never forgive yourself, unless you get up, get dressed and you brush you goddamn teeth, 'cause your breath stinks.
Gillian Owens
I hate it here. I wanna go where... where no-one's even heard of us.
Sally Owens
I feel like I'm never going to see you again.
Gillian Owens
Of course you're going to see me again. We're going to grow old together. It's gonna be you and me, living in a big house. These two old biddies with all these cats. I mean, I bet we even die in the same day.
Sally Owens
You swear?
Gillian Owens
Honey, I need your pocket knife. (cuts her hand and Sally's) My blood, your blood, our blood.

Sally Owens
What would you do, Gilly?
Gillian Owens
What wouldn't I do... for the right guy?
Gillian Owens
You ever put your arms out and spin really, really fast?
Antonia
She does it all the time.
Gillian Owens
She does? Well, that's what love is like. It makes your heart race. It turns the world upside down. But if you're not careful, if you don't keep your eyes on something still, you can lose your balance. You can't see what's happening to the people around you. You can't see that you're about to fall.
Gillian Owens
[possessed by Jimmy Angelov's spirit; crying] He wants me... just me. Everyone will be all right. Let him take me...

Satine
You promised me you wouldn't be jealous.
Ada Monroe

Virginia Woolf
I don't think two people could have been happier than we have been.

Dear Leonard. To look life in the face, always, to look life in the face and to know it for what it is. At last to know it, to love it for what it is, and then, to put it away. Leonard, always the years between us, always the years. Always the love. Always the hours.

This is my right; it is the right of every human being. I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs, but the violent jolt of the Capital, that is my choice. The meanest patient, yes, even the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity. I wish, for your sake, Leonard, I could be happy in this quietness.. [pause].. But if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I choose death

Did it matter, then, she asked herself, walking toward Bond Street. Did it matter that she must inevitably cease, completely. All this must go on without her. Did she resent it? Or did it not become consoling to believe that death ended absolutely? It is possible to die. It is possible to die.

No, I don't think it does. Not for me, it hasn't - has gone on for eleven years. But it changes though.

How?

I don't know... the weight of it, I guess. At some point, it becomes bearable. It turns into something that you can crawl out from under and... carry around like a brick in your pocket.
