What would happen to your love if you died and, years later, came back as another person? In Birth, this happens to an incredulous Nicole Kidman as Anna, and she cannot explain how her husband became a young boy 10 years after his death or why she may have still have feelings towards him in this 2004 drama. Lauren Bacall, Anne Heche, Ted Levine and Danny Hudson also star. It's got themes of endless love, obsession, child abuse and tragedy, so it maight not be for everyone but Nicole Kidman and then newcomer Cameron Bright bring this strange film to another level and make it worth seeing.

Continuity mistake: In the bedroom scene where Joseph discusses the boy's letter with Anna, we see Anna putting on her earrings, interestingly enough, her earrings change in each shot. First we see her putting on her 'left' earring while she is still standing by the bureau, then she sits down on the bed and puts on her 'left' earring again, then she stands up - and in the next shot we see her at the buffet where she is suddenly already wearing her 'right' earring, but miraculously missing her 'left' earring. (00:22:00 - 00:23:25)

Anna: You certainly had me fooled. I thought you were my dead husband... but you're just a little boy in my bathtub.

Trivia: During the controversial bathtub scene, Cameron Bright was never naked and he and Nicole Kidman were never even in the same room during the filming of the bath scene, apart from one camera shot, and when this shot happened both actors wore special clothes that were not visible to the camera.
