Very good. This film is one of the strangest and kinkiest I have seen in quite a while. An all-star cast with Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, John Cusack, Nicole Kidman, David Oyelowo, Macy Gray and Scott Glenn. Of these stars Kidman, McConaughey and Cusack were clearly operating outside their comfort zones. Whatever acting niche you've placed Kidman into her role in this film will likely redefine how you think of her. The movie is based on a 1995 novel. A period piece with a bit of film noir. The film got a 16 minute standing ovation at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival although I'm not sure why. This is one of those movies where the acting is great but the story is not. YMMV.
