WATCH KID­DING

Herald Sun - Hit - - THE HIT LIST - with MIKEY CAHILL

Jim Car­rey has had a rough trot. Two years ago his ex­girl­friend Cathri­ona White com­mit­ted sui­cide. She’d been in phone con­tact with Car­rey on the night she took her life in her Los An­ge­les home, leav­ing a note, which pleaded with him: “Please for­give me, I’m not for this world.” He was al­ready a her­mit of sorts, leav­ing the in­dus­try to spend years paint­ing. His come­back role in Kid­ding is the choice of a true artist: way out of his com­fort zone. Kid­ding is a tragi­com­edy that deals with de­pres­sion and fam­ily death as the less-rub­ber-faced-than-usual Car­rey plays Jeff, beloved by gen­er­a­tions as Mr Pick­les, a chil­dren’s TV host. He’s a bea­con of kind­ness and wis­dom, us­ing sock pup­pets to tell greater truths. stan.com.au/watch/kid­ding
