Taking to Twitter to discuss, one person wrote: "I don’t think there’s anything Nicole Kidman has been in that I haven’t loved. She’s just an incredible actress (and producer). I love her. #ROAR," while another person added: "I think I actually roared with delight when Judy Davis showed up as Nicole Kidman’s mom on Ep 2 of #ROAR for @AppleTV. A perfect pairing that I can’t believe hasn’t happened until now."

A third person added: "Just watched the first two episodes of #Roar on Apple TV. Loves the Issa Rae ep but OMG Judy Davis and Nicole Kidman together make a meal of episode 2. Too long since I’ve seen Judy Davis on screen. And maybe it’s my age but the story tore me up."


How amazing are Nicole and Judy in Roar?

Others weren’t too sure about Nicole’s episode, with one writing: "ROAR is really very, very good. I’ve watched 7 out of 8 stories so far and they’ve been stellar. Didn’t like the one with Nicole Kidman as much (generally not a fan) but even that one managed to make me sob at the end. Relatable, well-cast, best kind of weird," another person added: "#Roar on @AppleTV ALL episodes are incredible. Except the Nicole Kidman one, that one was blah."
