(US, 2016) Written and directed by Tom Ford, based on the novel by Austen Wright.
Cast: Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and destined for more than a few nominations in Awards season, Tom Ford’s new film is a mesmerizing thriller in the tradition of Vertigo and Chinatown. Just as Ford’s first film (A Single Man, starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore) showcased his great work with actors, Nocturnal Animals has iconic performances from Amy Adams as a bored L.A. gallery owner, Laura Linney as her martini-swilling mother, and Jake Gyllenhaal as Amy’s ex-husband, a struggling writer. The film’s clever trick is jumping between Adams’ present-day life, and the unfolding – in her imagination or in real life – of her husband’s story of violence and revenge… 118 min.

“Tom Ford hits it out of the park with a stunning film noir that resonates with ghostly, poetic terror. Surrender to it.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
