About the Movie
Academy Award® nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star in this haunting romantic thriller from acclaimed writer/director Tom Ford (A Single Man). Susan (Amy Adams) is living through an unfulfilling marriage when she receives a package containing a novel manuscript from her ex-husband, Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal). The novel is dedicated to her but its content is violent and devastating. Susan cannot help but reminisce over her past love story with the author. Increasingly she interprets the book as a tale of revenge, a tale that forces her to re-evaluate the choices that she has made, and reawakens a love that she feared was lost. Also starring Armie Hammer and Michael Shannon, NOCTURNAL ANIMALS is a thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There's much to admire in "Nocturnal Animals," including Mr. Ford's ambition, but too often it feels like the work of an observant student.
Fresh: Tom Ford hits it out of the park with a stunning film noir that resonates with ghostly, poetic terror. Don't overthink what Ford has so cunningly crafted. Surrender to it.
Fresh: [Ford] invests a tricky narrative juggling act with an intensity of human feeling that is the opposite of skin-deep. He tears through the veil of slick, self-admiring style that has both unlocked and at times obscured his very real merits as an artist.
Fresh: It's a tale bluntly told that arouses intense, evanescent emotion and then leaves you haunted, long afterward, by provocative but arguably answerable questions.
A MODERN LOVE STORY
Beautiful film about true love and what it means to do what is best.
Amazing movie, well worth watching it
Very original and well acted, a breath of fresh air. Specially liked the fiction thriller part of it
This movie is awful. Extremely overrated. Gyllenhaal has done much better in previous movies like the extremely underrated Nightcrawler, but does not stand out in this film. Michael Shannon is great, but he's always the best actor in any movie he is in.
Don't watch this movie. It's stressful, to be stressful. It's artistic to the point where this film is without substance. It's a film that tries too hard, but gets nowhere. It's incredibly over hyped.
