In Destroyer, Nicole Kidman delivers one of her finest performances to date as LAPD Detective Erin Bell, a woman who continues to be haunted by her partner’s (Sebastian Stan) death during an undercover investigation. When the leader (Toby Kebbell) resurfaces in Los Angeles, Bell risks life and limb to take him down.
