  4. I just assumed that her character was Australian, longtime resident in the USA?

  5. In fact, am trying to remember - doesn't her Australian accent start appearing during therapy sessions, the more emancipated she becomes? As if she was ashamed of it and hid it for much of her marriage, then starts letting it slip through...

    Kidman is pretty flawless when it comes to accents, so I am pretty certain that it's intentional... (think Toni Colette in Velvet Goldmine)...

  7. It is when you're supposed to have never left New Zealand/Australia yet have a half-American accent (hello Elisabeth Moss in Top Of The Lake!)
     
  8. Think is a theory I hadn't thought of before...works for me.
     
  9. Ha. I feel like that theory for Nicole's iffy American accent in BLL is a bit generous, but, sure, let's go with it. Moss' dreadful attempt at an accent in Top of the Lake was so distracting, I couldn't get past the first episode of Top of the Lake. Perhaps I should give it another shot since Nicole will be in s2.

  10. Nicole's accent was all over the place at certain parts but her performance throughout the whole series was great.

    I thought it was her usual 'American character' voice? Never noticed, let alone bothered me once.
