Erin Bell (an unrecognizable Nicole Kidman), a Los Angeles police detective, approaches the scene of an intriguing crime—a man covered in blood lies facing down, and the only clue to finding the culprit is a one-dollar bill soaked in purple paint. Bell declares she knows the murderer’s identity thanks to an undercover mission she took part in a few years back, in which she infiltrated a violent criminal gang. The leader of the gang, who has presumably returned, destroyed Bell’s personal life back then, and this time she would not let him go unpunished.
This is the starting point for Karyn Kusama—whose expert storytelling is indisputable throughout the fascinating timeline games in this film—to unfold a contemporary film noir in a visceral and authentic L.A.. Kidman delivers a chameleonic and fierce interpretation of Bell, full of nuances, which makes her worthy of standing alongside the great male anti-hero of this genre.
