A Celebration of Nicole Kidman

Though she is lauded and recognized around the globe, here in Nashville, we count ourselves among Nicole Kidman’s biggest admirers.

When she received the prestigious AFI Life Achievement Award this spring, it seemed a perfect and worthwhile occasion for the Belcourt to provide our own celebration of her extraordinary work. We have been so fortunate to have Ms. Kidman’s support of the Belcourt in the past — and for this series, we’re overwhelmingly honored that she was willing to assist in selecting eight films to highlight. While only a small portion of her extensive filmography, it’s a selection that covers a wide swath of this remarkable artist’s heralded career and talent — and her gifts to the world of cinema.
