In the film from John Cameron Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch"), Kidman plays Queen Boadicea, a "punk rock den mother." It's based on the short story by Neil Gaiman and is set in the '70s punk scene and London. Elle Fanning (Kidman's costar in "The Beguiled") plays an alien(!) who has a Romeo and Juliet-esque affair with a young punk, Enn (Tony winner Alex Sharp).
The film premieres this week at the Cannes Film Fest, along with three other Kidman projects: "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" (from the director of "The Lobster"), Sofia Coppola's "The Beguiled," and Season 2 of Jane Campion's mystery series "Top of the Lake."
