Critic's Pick

'To Die For'

November 24, 1996|Kenneth Turan

Directed by Gus Van Sant and written by Buck Henry, "To Die For" skewers America's fatal fascination with television and celebrity. Using a dead-on American accent, Nicole Kidman (pictured) plays a ferociously ambitious TV reporter who has brought an unlooked-for note of scandal to the town of Little Hope, N.H. Her husband, Larry (Matt Dillon), has been murdered, and America's tabloids, both print and TV, can't get enough of the possibility that his wife had a very particular hand in his death (HBO Saturday at Saturday at 8 p.m.).
