  • A cable-TV weather girl who'll do anything to become a celebrity seduces a high school student and convinces him to kill her go-nowhere husband in this black comedy. Gus Van Sant's (MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO, ELEPHANT) sly satire on America's tabloid mentality is loosely adapted from Joyce Maynard's chronicle of the real-life tale of husband-killer Pamela Smart.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[Kidman is] breathtaking....Kudos to Van Sant..." - Recommended
    Premiere

    "...Prime social satire and outrageous fun....Sparked by a volcanically sexy and richly comic performance..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...A smart black comedy that skewers America's fatal fascination with television and celebrity....Told with a panache that extends from the opening credits to its closing frames, TO DIE FOR plays its themes for everything they're worth..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...TO DIE FOR is the kind of movie that's merciless with its characters, and Kidman is superb....The film is filled with perfect character studies..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Nicole Kidman gives a peerless performance....Van Sant's non-linear faux-documentary narrative, with its tabloid-news-style talking heads and sly gags comes up fresh as a daisy after a dozen years."
    Sight and Sound

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] showcases some accomplished performances....These combine with some solid direction from Van Sant to result in a juicy little guilty pleasure."
    Ultimate DVD

    "...Kidman is like a Roman candle....Directed with comic brightness..." -- Rating: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...TO DIE FOR delivers continuous pinpricks of irreverent humor and subversive cultural commentary. Witty, energetic and splendidly acted..."
    Variety

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Like the finest satire, TO DIE FOR is no-prisoners nasty, very funny and both exaggerated and true."
