   schema:reviewBody ""From the film historian and critic David Thomson, a book that reinvents the star biography in a portrait of Nicole Kidman - and what it means to be a top actress today. At once life story, love letter, and critical analysis, this is not merely a book about who Kidman is but about what she is - in our culture and in our minds, on- and offscreen." "Here are the details of an actress's life: her performances in To Die For, The Portrait of a Lady, Eyes Wide Shut, Moulin Rouge!, The Hours, and Birth, among other films; her high-visibility marriage to Tom Cruise; her intense working relationship with Stanley Kubrick and her collaborations with Anthony Minghella and Baz Luhrmann; her work with Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Renee Zellweger, and John Malkovich; her decisions concerning nudity, endorsements, and publicity." "And here are Thomson's considerations of what celebrity means in the life of an actress like Kidman; of how the screen becomes both barrier and open sesame for her and for her audience; of what is required today of an actress of Kidman's stature if she is to remain vital to the industry and to the audiences who made her a prime celebrity."--BOOK JACKET." ;
