“The End, The Beginning” tracks the relationship between a teenage girl (Skye) and her father (Finn). Based in the postcard town of Collector this absurd, comical romp follows Skye as she and the townspeople come to grips with the knowledge that the world is ending due to climate change. Our film playfully examines what it means to be a young person searching for purpose. Skye initially views her father as a villain however our film concludes when she finally sees her fathers vulnerability and ultimately his humanity.

I Gave Nicole Kidman A Big Bunch Of Red Roses...

...in the film Moulin Rouge! while she was singing 'Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend'.

Then she knocked them out of my hand, pushed me backwards and danced over me.

Since then I've appeared in Dirty Deeds in a scene opposite John Goodman, Hunt Angels in a scene with Ben Mendelsohn and an improvised scene with Adrien Brody in Backtrack.

Here's a clip of Nicole and I which I just found online. I give her the red roses at 1:50. Enjoy!
