Director Karyn Kusama's police drama 'Destroyer' premiered at the Toronto Film Festival on September 11 at the Winter Garden Theatre. In attendance were Nicole Kidman, Sebastian Stan, Tatiana Maslany, James Jordan, Shamier Anderson, writers and producers Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, and director Kusama.
Nicole plays the lead role of Eric Bell, an LAPD detective who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past. It is the Los Angeles of today which remains the primary focus of the film, bringing to the viewers a glimpse into the 21st-century melting pot of corrupt lawyers and small-time crooks, gun dealers and local preachers, hard-working middle-class laborers and charismatic charlatans. The city, in the film, is itself a mirror of Erin's divided soul: humming with secrets and lies.
Also starring in the film are Sebastian Stan, Toby Kebbell, Tatiana Maslany, Bradley Whitford, Jade Pettyjohn, Scoot McNairy. The film is produced by Fred Berger(La La Land, Operation Finale) and the screenplay is credited to writer/producers Hay and Manfredi (The Invitation, crazy/beautiful).
