NICOLE KIDMAN MUST NOT DIE!
on 10 July 2013
Nicolas Cage stars as Kyle Miller, a rich successful diamond dealer with a home safe bigger than my bank's. He doesn't have time for his family. Nicole Kidman plays his wife Sarah who struggles to keep the family together. Liana Liberato is their daughter Avery, who is at that difficult rebellious teen stage. She is not allowed to see Kendra (Emily Meade) who is a bad influence on her.
Once the characters are quickly established the movie turns into a home break-in film. Avery is not at home because she disobeyed her parents to go to a party with Kendra...a party that has the forbidden older boys!
While Kyle and his wife are being bullied and threatened, Kyle is attempting to figure out who these people are from indirect clues they give him. Cage manages to cause disharmony among the thieves. There are flashbacks as Kyle and Kidman think they know who these people are. As it turns out they both have their dirty little secrets. Excellent job by the actors. Fairly decent script for a home break-in which is normally a "B" movie. Good script with multiple twists and they weave seeming useless things from the beginning into the mesh. One of the better home break-in films. If you liked this one try the new version of "Mother's Day."
One of the thieves, Jordana Spiro, for some reason feels she must look around upstairs in her bra and panties. Thanks.
