In this film, there is no conventional set, or scenes shot outdoors. Instead, the streets of the small 1930s American town in which it is set are indicated by chalk lines drawn on the floor of the studio, with only a few props used for emphasis. Nicole Kidman stars as a stranger in town whose arrival causes both curiosity and suspicion in an apparently close-knit community. This is a harsh but unforgettable tale about trust and betrayal - with the unusual filmmaking approach becoming strangely hypnotic as the story gains momentum.
Provocative Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier continues his investigation of US culture, this time set in a 1930s plantation with thriving slavery.
