Director Lars von Trier's ("Dancer in the Dark") offbeat drama stars Nicole Kidman as a mysterious fugitive hiding from gangsters in the sleepy town of Dogville. After her enemies come looking for her, Kidman is forced to agree to the townspeople's increasingly brutal demands in order to remain safe, becoming in effect their slave. With Lauren Bacall, Paul Bettany, Jean-Marc Barr, Philip Baker Hall. 177 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; audio commentary by von Trier, others.
