Nicole Kidman thinks The Northman is the director’s most epic film to date

Acclaimed star Nicole Kidman says The Northman is filmmaker Robert Eggers’ most epic film to date as the Viking saga continues to win acclaim.

Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman says she thinks filmmaker Robert Eggers The man from the north is his most epic film to date. In a career that spans nearly thirty years, Kidman has made a name for himself as one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. The fifty-four-year-old has worked with some of cinema’s greatest filmmakers, and for years she and now her ex-husband Tom Cruise have been considered the ultimate high-profile couple. More recently, Kidman’s Oscar-nominated role as comedian Lucille Ball was followed by a role in The man from the north.

Located in Iceland in 895, The man from the north tells the story of Amleth (Alexander Skarsgard), a young prince whose father, King Aurvandill War-Raven (Ethan Hawke) is killed by his brother, Fjolnir (Claes Bang). The kingdom of Aurvandill is then taken over by Fjolnir, resulting in the disappearance of Amleth’s mother, Queen Gudrun (Kidman), and forcing runaway Amleth to live in exile. Vowing revenge for his father’s death, Amleth’s quest is heartbreaking, filled with the kind of apocalyptic reflection that has colored Eggers’ filmography to this day. By now, the movie has received a lot of critical acclaim, which has some already wondering if it could be the first Oscar contender of 2022.

While it’s not uncommon to see Kidman in a highly acclaimed production, a film like The man from the north doesn’t come so often. Eggers continues to prove to audiences and critics that his brand of cinema is worth watching, and The man from the north just might be the movie that will take his career to the next level. Kidman seems to believe this is the case, calling The man from the north Eggers’ most epic work to date. During an interview with hello americaKidman praised Eggers and his work, saying:

“He’s committed to filmmaking, to bringing movies that are beautiful and epic to the big screen and this was probably the most epic.”

Eggers first gained recognition in 2015 with the release of the Voltage Inductor The witch – a film that some were quick to call a horror but which gave audiences more than just scares. The witch was a certified success on the festival circuit and paved the way for the follow-up to Oscar-nominated Eggers Lighthouse, which starred Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. The dark black-and-white drama once again toyed with elements of the horror genre and delivered what some consider a deeply underrated performance from Dafoe. With The man from the northEggers’ unique vision is back and arguably better than ever, imbuing the big screen with its visceral and unique recreations of the past.

Whether or not Kidman gets his second Oscar nomination in two years for his work in The man from the north that remains to be seen. The film has a strong cast and provides the perfect environment for Eggers’ dark yet engaging cinematic style. There’s no doubt that her movies have gotten bigger with each successive release, and Kidman could very well be right when she says it’s probably Eggers’ most epic film to date. This will surely sit well with fans, but it also promises a fascinating future for a filmmaker who is still at the start of his career.
