Nicole Kidman talks "universal theme of a man controlling of every aspect of a woman's life" in Before I Go To Sleep


Good Slacker Sunday morning all! (What a crazy headline!)I hope the day finds you well and happy, ready to celebrate the glorious world and your place and space within in. Yeah, I woke up in a good mood: Ebola, Isis, right-wing politicians, you don't scare me! What does? The idea of people carrying guns in grocery stores. Thank God that doesn't happen here in California, but I signed and tweeted the Moms Demand Action petition to stop Krogers in other parts of the country from allowing guns in their grocery stores. Check my twitter feed or link to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense In America  End of political rant, thank you. 

Okay, back to fun, scary stuff. Here in the states Before I Go To Sleep, a horror movie of sorts, is being released the day before Halloween. Based on the SJ Watson thriller which I've posted about from time to time, Before I Go To Sleep stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong. For today's Sunday Slacker post I'm posting the most recent trailer and linking to an interview with Kidman in The Australian 

Here's what Kidman told the magazine about the subject of control within the context of a marriage - and the film. Just in case you think she's talking about her relationship with Scientology's superstar Tom Cruise, she clarified that no, it's not about him. 
Simply enough, Kidman says she was attracted to the film because she knew its director, Rowan Joffe, the director of Brighton Rock. (Joffe is also the son of director Roland.) “(I) just connected to the universal theme of a man controlling every part of a woman’s world and her having to fight her way out of that,” she says. 
Kidman says she was intrigued by the internal struggles in this film: Christine’s need for her husband (Colin Firth’s Ben) and how that contrasts with the husband relishing “complete control over every aspect of her life”. 
“Control is a really fascinating subject for a movie,” she says. “And that’s what this is, it’s a film about that and identity, obviously.”
