NEW YORK -- Nicole Kidman is being honored by the New York Film Festival in a gala tribute.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Tuesday that Kidman will be celebrated at the 50th-annual New York Film Festival. The festival will also honor its longtime director Richard Pena in a second gala.

The film "The Paperboy" has been added to the festival's slate. It's directed by Lee Daniels and stars Kidman, Zac Efron, John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey.
