Went to see The Others

Went to see The Others last night. Couldn’t resist popping in on opening night. I mean, a ghost story with Nicole–how irresistable is that? All the performances were delectable. I was especially happy to see Fionnula Flanagan, a character actress for whom I have a particular soft spot. Kidman was perfect. Her performances always surprise me in their depth and attention to detail. Here she plays a woman of deep religious conviction, breaking under the stress of raising challenging children. Oh, and then there are the ghosts. You’ll try to figure out what’s going on all through the movie–and once or twice you’ll probably be right. Amen
