Following a period of critical and commercial failures, Kidman earned a fourth Oscar nomination for playing a troubled mother in the biopic Lion (2016).
She returned to television in 2017 with a highly acclaimed performance as a victim of domestic abuse in the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies, for which she received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.
She went on to achieve wide recognition with leading roles in the romantic drama Far and Away (1992), the superhero film Batman Forever (1995), the crime comedy-drama To Die For (1995), for which she won a Golden Globe Award, and the erotic thriller Eyes Wide Shut (1999).
Across town, Larry Reed (Algee Smith), lead singer with aspiring unsigned R&B outfit The Dramatics, smarting at having the group’s big-break at a show featuring Martha & The Vandellas cut short on account of the riots, takes a room at the Algiers Motel, and he and his younger friend Fred (Jacob Latimore) hook up with a couple of white girls (Hannah Murray and Kaitlyn Dever) looking to experience the sexual revolution.
They all go up to a room for drinks where, illustrating a familiar scenario between white cop and black guy, one of the guests Carl ( (Jason Mitchell) pulls a prank with a starting pistol and then thinks it might be fun to shoot it out of the window at the National Guard.
The two versions of the poem, Stanzas and Elegy, approach death differently; the first contains a stoic response to death, but the final version contains an epitaph which serves to repress the narrator's fear of dying.
With its discussion of, and focus on, the obscure and the known, the poem has possible political ramifications, but it does not make any definite claims on politics to be more universal in its approach to life and death.
The series features up and coming comedy stars, along with the show's original cast.
Similar in premise to shows such as Whose Line Is It Anyway?It was sent to his friend Horace Walpole, who popularised the poem among London literary circles.Gray was eventually forced to publish the work on 15 February 1751, to pre-empt a magazine publisher from printing an unlicensed copy of the poem.At this point everything goes to shit, as, believing there to be a sniper in the motel, bigot cops Krauss (a terrifyingly chilling Will Poulter) and Demens (Jack Reynor), storm the place and line all the guests, among them Vietnam veteran , (Anthony Mackie), against the wall demanding to know who fired the gun and where it is.Before long, Carl is lying dead and things are going from bad to worse as Krauss, a baby-faced bullying racist with a power complex, who’s already shot one looter in the back and is disgusted at what he assumes to be miscegenation, seeks to torture and terrorise the others into giving up the shooter.Inevitably, either because they don’t know or are unwilling to talk, no one is saying anything.
