Nicole Kidman: Home Sydney Home

Nicole Kidman arrives in Sydney on Monday with her husband, country superstar Keith Urban, after a flight from Nashville, Tenn.

The couple will be attending Tuesday’s Sydney premiere for her new Baz Luhrmann-directed film, Australia.

Unfortunately for Keith at this year’s Country Music Awards (CMAs), he lost out to Kenny Chesney for Entertainer of the Year and Brad Paisley for Male Vocalist of the Year. Maybe next year!

Australia First Review,

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman shine in Australia

REVIEW: HE SET himself an enormous challenge, but Baz Luhrmann has pulled off an incredible film in Australia.

Shoehorning two complete films into one package, Australia sees Nicole Kidman as Lady Sarah Ashley, a priviilged aristocrat drawn to the outback to sell her late husband’s failing cattle station.

But she’s soon drawn to the landscape, a little Aboriginal boy called Nullah, played startlingly by newcomer Brandon Walters, and a taciturn drover (Hugh Jackman) who reluctantly helps her save her property.

The film begins with surprising slapstick and trademark Luhrmann over-the-top humour – a scene featuring Jackman giving himself a bath with a bucket is pure beefcake and proud of it – but settles into a compelling and moving tale which traverses war, race relations, class and the Stolen Generation.

It’s a movie with a message, but Luhrmann provides the audience with no shortage of thrills, from a cliff hanger cattle stampede to the bombing of Darwin.

Kidman and Jackman are perfect together, Jackman’s broad speaking drover a perfect foil to Kidman’s snooty English rose.

Australia is full of familiar faces, from David Gulpilil to David Wenham, Bryan Brown to Ben Mendelsohn, but not so familiar places, to many Australians anyway.

Australia features some of the most beautiful photography ever seen in an Australian film, from the Bungle Bungles in the Kimberley to the Northern Territory in the midst of the wet season.

A love letter to the Australian landscape and our history, Australia has international blockbuster written all over it.

the real jc. @ 11/17/2008 at 11:24 am

I’ve heard Australia (the film) is the Gone With the Wind for a new generation. That’s a mighty BIG call. HUGE call. But I guess if it’s to be done, who better to do it than Baz and then add those two leads……..I just can’t see how you could go wrong.

GOOD VICTORIA @ 11/17/2008 at 11:27 am

Why TWO big long interview’s ?????..and they are the same !!
Nicole is so beautiful and talented that I would watch her in ANY movie….It’s to bad Keith lost out in both of the important CMA’s category, but Kenny and Brad are just as good…Tough call !!!
Where is Sunday Rose ????….left behind with a nanny ?

# 7

Thanks for the review!! Sounds exciting and excellent work by Baz. This is going to be a wonderful movie to experience. I’m thrilled that he’s made such a proud moment for Australia.

# 8

Woohoo!! A glowing review , CAN´T WAIT EITHER

# 9

Good Victoria, little Sunday doesn’t have a day nanny, sez Kidman. I guess she’s back in Nashville left to fend for herself.

viva la vida @ 11/17/2008 at 11:40 am

I miss Australia (the country)! Don’t know about the film though, not a big fan of nicky kidman in general

Great first review !!!!!!

GOOD VICTORIA

Where is Sunday Rose ????….left behind with a nanny ?

i Guess, nicole and keith will stay less than 24 hours in australia

To attend the premiere only

Australia will be 2 hours and 45 minutes of PERFECTION

Love her, can’t wait for the movie

I Love Australia the country! I can’t wait to view the scenery!

this film does look beautiful,
so many oscars Here

Interesting

The movie looks good and Hugh jackman is the sexiest movie star alive. he’s so manly and hairy. grrr

I SO WANNA SEE AUSTRALIA!!!

THIS MOVIE will be so awesome!!!

can´t wait for this movie!!!!!!!!!! Nicole and Hugh are the perfect couple

HUGH, NICOLE AND BAZ:

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE YOU!

This movie will be great…

I LOVE BAZ!!!

AND HUGH AND NIC ARE SUCH GREAT ACTORS!!!!

oh,the Review looks awesome!
can’t wait ,this movie is based on the country I live in and theres not many of them, awesome! Nicole Kidman is great and it looks so good!

a new baz’s masterpiece!! I cant wait

Beautiful!
can’t wait to see Nicole in this!
she’s going to be brilliant! This is going to be The Best Movie of The Year. Hugh Jackman is awesome. OSCAR AWARDS

Everything looks right in this movie. Totally love Nicole and I think this time around she is back. Hope she gets an oscar nod for Best Actress and wins too yay why not.

I fucken can not wait 2 see nicole in her new role. it looks like a oscar winner n i know she is goin 2 win the oscar this time cuz she got cheated 3 times befor.

I hope the baby was just being carried by someone else not pictured. How could anyone leave a baby that age for that long?!

finally a good movie!!!!

thanks God for Baz Lurhmann!!!

think this movie will be spectacular. There are not to many true auteur directors left in hollywood, and Baz is one of them. I think that this film will probably be his best, because it is a movie about his home. The passion is there for all of the players. People will be very surprised by how well this does( awards/ box office, etc). Correct me if I am wrong but I believe the budget is 140 million and he is not a wasteful director from what I know

Baz is a genius, any thing from him will be just perfect

I have been waiting for this film for so long…I love Hugh Jackman…he is the perfect fit for the role and Nicole Kidman and Baz Luhrmann are a great match as director/actress

this will be visually award winning but as of now i cant say much more about it

a fantastic director and two of the World’s leading stars,-I think and hope this will at least see several Oscar nominations

welcome home nickeith ,cant wait for australia

I can’t wait to see this film. I love Baz Luhrmann, he has been away too long!

Baz Luhrmann is a genius…I can hardly wait for this movie

really want see Australia’s movie .. i love the trailer is soo espectacularr!!

the movie will be stunning and fabulous. Anything Baz does is sensational by any world standards

Megan fox rocks @ 11/17/2008 at 12:25 pm

lov’em both they r so awesome and sweet

a great Review ,very positive Can’t wait to see it definitely

The first review is wonderful,Suddenly, I’m interested in Queen Nikki’s performance all over again

Oh my! I’m so excited now

Most of the posts above seem to be written by one person. The movie will probably be good, but I don’t look forward to Nicole’s bizarre, childish gushing about Baz, like she did after Moulin Rouge. I always thought she was having an affair with him.

The doctors advised Nicole that the whirlwind trip would be too much for the baby. She’s leaving straight after the premiere party.

As for not having a nanny, it’s possible she’s left the baby with family as I believe her sister Antonia was spotted with her a few days ago.

BAZ LUHRMANN’s Australia is an incredible film, according to the first reviews from the country in which it was set.

Kidman and her husband, country singer Keith Urban, arrived in Sydney last night on their private jet just after 10pm.

The couple were without their four-month-old daughter Sunday Rose after doctors advised Kidman that flying in and out of Australia in 24 hours would be too much for the baby.

http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/stor…5001021,00.html

I don’t know why Uban was nomenated for a awared at all he can’t carry a tune anymore Tobey Keith should of got it

I am so excited to see this film. I think Nicole Kidman is so gracious and Hugh Jackman is…. well words do not discribe……. They are both amazing actors and to be set in a historical film it just doesn’t get any better than this for a movie.

“I hope the baby was just being carried by someone else not pictured. How could anyone leave a baby that age for that long?!”
______________________________________________

Have you forgotten – we are talking Nicole Kidman here. Remember her other two children that she doesn’t see for months? Sunday isn’t there.

Oh, Kidman looks so classy and glamorous in these pictures!

Where is their baby?

__________________________

Are you for real? Antonia has not been seen with Kidman the last few days, and there is no family in Nashville to take care of Sunday! The night-time and day-time nannies will take care of her like they do everyday – nothing different for Sunday and the nannies to not have Kidman by their sides.

HEY HATERS!!! @ 11/17/2008 at 12:57 pm

WHAT PART OF THIS DON´T U UNDERSTAND?????

The couple were without their four-month-old daughter Sunday Rose after doctors advised Kidman that flying in and out of Australia in 24 hours would be too much for the baby.

DOCTORS ADVISED KIDMAN THAT FLYING IN AND OUT OF AUSTRALIA IN 24 HOURS WOULD BE TOO MUCH FOR THE BABY!!!

HEY HATERS!!! @ 11/17/2008 at 12:58 pm

DOCTORS ADVISED KIDMAN THAT FLYING IN AND OUT OF AUSTRALIA IN 24 HOURS WOULD BE TOO MUCH FOR THE BABY!!!

Didn’t Kidman recently say that she could never be away from Sunday for more than a day? Let’s see, it takes around 40 hours to fly there and back, and then add the 24 hours in Oz – by my calculations, that’s more than 24 hours away from Sunday.

Ignarance is bliss @ 11/17/2008 at 1:01 pm

It’s a 20 hour flight each way with high cabin pressure. One way is fine for an infant under 6 mths of age. But a return to normal altitude and then back on a jet for another 20 hour flight is insane and completely doesn’t make sense.

Nicole will be giving interviews and attending a premier or tow. There would be no time for the baby.

No one with knowledge of international air travel, temperature and/or time zone changeswould put a baby through such an ordeal only to leave the baby with a sitter at a hotel for one day.

BTW, It’s freezing in Nashville now and the middle of Summer in Sydney.

Ever fly to another cliate and back without catching the worst flu ever, I haven’t.

Thanks for the update on this always classy woman!

Jaqueline @ 11/17/2008 at 1:07 pm

I left my 5 mth old baby at home for a weekend when I had a convention in NYC.

It simply made no sense to interrupt the sleep schedule and drag a baby around the country for two days.

There Is absolutely no sensible advantage to having a baby travel around the globe if the baby can stay safe in it’s crib at home.

People never see Kate Winslet’s kids, or even Teri Hatchers.
They’re all real and they all see their moms

about sunday

doctors advised Kidman that flying in and out of Australia in 24 hours would be too much for the baby

iam not a big fan of nicole ether but you makes me soo excited

excited Review ,defiantly i will watch this movie

I know I’m going to see the movie more than once

I can’t wait to see Australia, as well. I want to see Brandon Walters, the aboriginal child. That is beautiful little boy. There is just something about his eyes that just grabs me!!

Oh Yea, I want to see gorgeous Hugh and beautiful Nicole too, lol!

I can’t believe they left a small baby at home, even if its for a short time. She sure does leave that baby a lot. I’ve read where the test audiences for this film said it was disastrous, so I think I’ll wait to see before I spend my hard-earned cash. It amazes me how all these celebrities talk about “carbon footprints” and not wasting fuel and these two go from the US to OZ for just a 24 hr stay, talk about wasteful.

Cindy, do you want some cheese with that “whine”!! Good grief. I’ve read 2 reviews that were really great! BTW, I hate that Keith didn’t win, but he’s gotten it before and he will do it again. The Nashville suites just feel sorry for Kenny because he has no life except out on the road playing to all the drunk college kids.

Back away from Kenny! When has Keith Urban ever filled a 50,000+ capacity stadium? And please let me know when Keith is on stage for three hours during his set! Also, ETOY is about portraying the country music image, and I believe Urban has been referred to as “Hollywood Boy” by music critics lately.

Kenny portrays “country music” ? ? Lately, it seems he’s been portraying “island & pop music” and his stadium shows ARE total drunk-fests. If you read any of the reviews of his stadium shows that Keith played at , you’d see that people were AMAZED how GREAT Keith was. And since when is Kenny on stage for 3 solid hours??? EOTY is ALL ABOUT THE BUCKS RAKED IN AND NOTHING ELSE.

The show I was at – he was on the stage for that long!

I should have mentioned this before – as far as the drunks, it’s obvious that done of you have ever been to an all-day music festival. It happens everywhere when people start drinking in the morning, and imagine it going on for a full weekend! Your perfect Keith Urban has been a headliner at many of those concerts, so I guess that doesn’t say much for him, does it?

andamentothat @ 11/17/2008 at 4:25 pm

This will be a good movie.. and I am excited to see Brandon Walters as much as Hugh and Nic.. Nicole is a proud Australian and it shows in the clips…

Hey gep – if it’s about money that is raked in, Urban won ETOY when he was still performing in auditoriums.. Why don’t you look up the criteria for the CMA awards on their web site.

Absolutely can’t wait for this movie! I love Australia and these two actors have so much on screen chemistry in the trailers!

If Nicole was contracted to be at the premiere,than Keith could have stayed with the baby.Should have stayed with her. Yet if Nicole could have gotten out of the premier,I’m surprised she didn’t,since she claimed to have wanted a baby for so long.

Omg im absolutely shocked by this FANATIC SCARY FREAK of ALI who posted more than 50 posts changing sentences making it look like it’s from a different persons, what a desperated freak , i feel sorry for you,i guess you know that your botox queen doesn’t have a lot of fans so you are trying to post excessivly to making it look that way, and trying to convice us to see that crap movie, the posts of this freak should be deleted.

Without the diferents posts of this scary freak there will be only like 9 posts on this thread.

Just because you have not seen the baby wiht her at previous events doesn’t mean she wasn’t wiht her. She took her to the studio in London, Sydney & she was there at the Glamour event just backstage. They don’t parade their child around. I am sure they have somene very caring taking care of her. They are not stupid people though some would like to believe they are.

get a life @ 11/17/2008 at 6:10 pm

First of all, if Nicole had brought Sunday with her, some here would have been bashing her for putting her baby in danger by flying so much in such a short amount of time. Secondly, the same people would have been trashing Keith if he’d have stayed in Nashville. I can hear it now…”If he loves her so much, how can he not be w/ her @ the premiere of her biggest role in years”…. It never ceases to amaze & frustrate me how much outsiders claim to know so much about these 2 people. Unless you know Nicole & Keith on a personal level you (& I for that matter) have no clue what they do or why they do it. It seems to me that people who spew such negativity surely live a sad & dismal life.

As far as the movie goes, I look forward to seeing Australia. I have not read or seen one negative review. I can’t wait till Thanksgiving!

I agree

Are you people CRAZY? Another suck job movie…..Is she naked in it? Thats the only way she gets in a movie….But maybe shes just too damn old for anyone to want to see her–well=-private parts/YUK
I am hoping things are really reversed in Oz.Then that would mean=you people really hate her as much as we do here in the Good Old USA…Keep them there=PLEASE!

Where is Sunday?!?!

78#

we will have to wait until tomorrow before we can get a general concensus

hay ali ,you are sooooooooooo funny

Hey, even if the movie tanks, she’s still got that gorgeous man and that beautiful baby to go home to. That’s what really rankles most of the haters. They never paid much attention to her until she hooked up with Keith. Lucky Nicole.

PS. I wouldn’t miss the movie.

Ahhh, she should have brought the baby and stayed longer in Australia to visit family. I don’t know maybe she had prior commitments to work or something and can’t stay long in OZ to visit family. Sure the grandparents would have loved to see their Sunday Rose. Maybe they will bring her for Christmas. Hope the movie does good.

i guess they forgot to pick up Bella & Connor on their way to Oz. wouldn’t it have been nice for them to attend the movie with their mom and her family? why wouldn’t she take them with her to Oz if she gets to see them all the time like her fans want to believe?

Thanksgiving in NYC with Bella and Connor is why she is winging back quickly!

And the contracturally obligated US premiere too!

I guess you forgot that they brought Rose to Australia from Tennessee, when she had to do the reshoots. She was what a month old ? What about THAT cabin pressure ? As much as I love Australia, (the country, not Kidman’s look at me, look at me, film) I will not be seeing this so called Epic. There is just so much you can stand. My movies over the holidays will be Quantam of Solace with hunky Mr. Craig, Four Christmases, and Tom’s new movie Valkyrie. I think THAT movie will be great !

I thought someone said on here that Antonia was back in Nashville taking care of Sunday. Well, she was at the premiere – how does that work?

I don’t blame them for not taking the baby for just a 24 hr stay. I would not want to mess with my baby’s schedule either. Not only is there the significant time change, there is, as stated earlier, the weather change. Why should Keith and Nicole be dogged for putting the welfare of the baby 1st and not only that, why aren’t parents allowed to have a little time alone? Any parenting book that you read says that you should put your marriage first and that the best gift that you can give to your children is to love and respect each other. Have none of you ever went out or on an overnight or weekend w/o your children? I guess I, like Nicole, am a terrible mother because I have.

Oh, regarding Kenny vs Keith. Kenny has not sold out stadiums of 50,000 fans by himself. He always has 3 or 4 other stars with him. As for when Keith was with him, they are GOOD friends and Keiths tour had just ended and he was in Nashville working on new songs and played a few shows with Kenny. If you read any of the reviews for those shows, they all stated that Keith Urban was the best of the entire show. I have been to see KU 4 times and he is a true entertainer. I have not seen Kenny so can’t comment on that but he has had some very good songs. I am not crazy about all of his songs about drinking and partying, but that is not who I am.

I wish they had of cast Kate Blanchett in Australia ,I find Nicole to unnatural on screen t have seen her last few movies and found her acting makes me cringe ,there is more to performing then designer clothes & cosmetics ,maybe she should of taken up modelling because her acting sinks
