To Die For

Time Out says

For New Hampshire girl Suzanne Stone (Kidman), you're nobody in America unless you're on TV; indeed, she'd die to achieve small-screen celebrity. Fortunately for her, she's both determined and attractive enough to work her seductive wiles on the local cable-station boss, who appoints her weather presenter - and then allows her to work on a documentary with and about high school kids. Against all odds, she befriends three awesomely inarticulate no-hopers - but there's method to her madness: her husband Larry (Dillon) wants to have kids, so she exerts her influence over the trio to defend her endangered career. If you've hitherto failed to respond to the laid-back oddball appeal of Van Sant's movies, fear not: this is a sharp, consistently funny blend of black comedy and satire on the deleterious effects of television.
