10 years after the death of her husband, Sean, Anna is on the verge of marrying someone new. That is until a young boy turns up claiming to be Sean reincarnated. Though she ignores him at first, his knowledge of Sean’s life is uncanny, leading her to believe that he might be telling the truth.

What are critics saying?


The New York Times by Dana Stevens

Without Ms. Kidman's brilliantly nuanced performance, Birth might feel arch, chilly and a little sadistic, but she gives herself so completely to the role that the film becomes both spellbinding and heartbreaking, a delicate chamber piece with the large, troubled heart of an opera.


Village Voice by Dennis Lim

If Birth succeeds more as a source of visual and aural enthrallment than as supernatural narrative, it's largely because the final third hovers uncomfortably between the mystical and the earthbound.


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

Birth may be the most futile application of cinematic and acting skill I've seen all year. A little "Twilight Zone" flummery would have livened up the proceedings to no end.


Entertainment Weekly by Owen Gleiberman

When Kidman slithers into a bathtub with her young ''husband,'' the scene, in its soft-pedaled way, is the definition of exploitation: It appears to have been cooked up for no other purpose than to conjure creepy child-porn overtones.
