DANIELLE’S TOP PICK OF THE WEEK

This week’s selection is Destroyer

Destroyer features a strong performance from actress Nicole Kidman but its storytelling decisions might prevent some from truly enjoying the film.

LAPD detective Erin Bell (Nicole Kidman) remains haunted by events from years earlier while working undercover.  One day while at the office, Bell becomes the recipient of mail containing dyed money.  She knows then and there that gangster Silas (Toby Kebbell) is back in town.  She’s hell-bent on finding him after what happened years earlier while working on an undercover FBI sting with Chris (Sebastian Stan).  It’s because of her history that she knows what crimes he is capable of doing.
