Kidman Opens Rome Film Festival

Hollywood star NICOLE KIDMAN opened the Rome Film Festival today (13OCT06) with the premiere of her new movie FUR: AN IMAGINARY PORTRAIT OF DIANE ARBUS. The MOULIN ROUGE actress praised the festival for raising awareness for films which would ordinarily be ignored. She says, "I wanted to support this festival and Italy. Film festivals are very good for small films like this one, the more we have the better." Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus stars Kidman as the famous photographer with ROBERT DOWNEY JR as her mentor. SIR SEAN CONNERY was honoured with a lifetime achievement award on the eve of the inaugural festival (12OCT06), with Festival President GOFFREDO BETTINI lauding the actor for "his fame, popularity and his brilliance."
