Nocturnal Animals

Location: Filmhuis De Zwarte Doos

Tom Ford, VS 2016
language: english – subtitles: dutch

 

From writer/director Tom Ford comes a haunting romantic thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and themselves in Nocturnal Animals.

Susan Morrow (Amy Adams) lives an incredibly privileged yet unfulfilled life with her husband Hutton Morrow (Armie Hammer). One weekend, Susan receives an unsolicited package that has been left in her mailbox. It is a novel, Nocturnal Animals, written by her ex-husband Edward Sheffield (Jake Gyllenhaal), with whom she has had no contact for years. Edward’s note accompanying the manuscript encourages Susan to read the work and then to contact him during his visit to the city.

The novel is dedicated to her, but its content is violent and devastating, as Edward tells the tale of Tony Hastings (also portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal). Driving across a lonely stretch of Texas one night, Tony and his family are harassed by a trio of joyriders.

Moved by Edward’s writing, Susan cannot help but reminisce over the most private moments from her own love story with the author – as the story builds to a reckoning that will define both the novel’s hero and her own.
