“Nicole Kidman excels (…) An exceptional comic pleasure.”
The Times

Bank manager John gets much more than he bargained for when he chooses a mail-order Russian bride. All seems perfect at first but when her two cousins turn up from Russia a chain of events takes place and John is forced to rob his own bank to save Nadia’s life…

Director: Jez Butterworth
Screenwriters: Tom Butterworth and Jez Butterworth
Principal Cast: Nicole Kidman, Ben Chaplin, Vincent Cassell, Mathieu Kassovitz, Stephen Mangan, Ben Miller, Alexander Armstrong

“Cassel, Kassovitz and Kidman are beautifully graceful against the backdrop of signs to Tring and Newbury. The bit-parts are played by members of the League of Gentlemen, Smack the Pony and the Armstrong and Miller Show, who contribute little thumbnails of Britishness, nudging Chaplin to break out of his shell. ‘Take the ball and run with it, John,’ one of them tells him in middle-management pep-speak. Watching him do it makes entertaining and unusual viewing.”
