First look: Nicole Kidman in Jane Campion’s highly acclaimed Top of the Lake
BBC today released the first official image of Nicole Kidman in BBC Two and See-Saw Films’ second series of the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Top of the Lake.
The critically acclaimed mini-series is produced by See-Saw Films for BBC Two in association with BBC First in Australia, BBC UKTV in New Zealand, SundanceTV and Hulu in the United States, ARTE in France and BBC Worldwide.
Kidman will play an Australian mother, Julia, who’s story will intersect with Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) who is reprising her Golden Globe winning role as Detective Robin Griffin.
Top of the Lake: China Girl is a crime mystery story that begins four years on from the explosive ending of series one. Five years after the shocking events that rocked her hometown in New Zealand, Detective Robin Griffin, recently returned to Sydney, is trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realises “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin’s search to discover “China Girl’s” identity takes her into the city’s criminal underbelly and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
Top of the Lake: China Girl will broadcast on BBC Two in 2017.
