Nocturnal Animals
horizontal line

A dark, gripping, well-acted, critically acclaimed, riveting, violent, well-written, star-studded (Laura Linney, Michael Sheen, Andrea Riseborough, Jena Malone, and Imogen Waterhouse), nonlinear, 117-minute Tom Ford thriller based on Austin Wright’s novel “Tony and Susan” in which divorced, insomnia-afflicted Los Angeles gallery owner (Amy Adams), who is unhappy with her handsome, distant husband (Armie Douglas Hammer), receives a book manuscript from her former spouse (Jake Gyllenhaal) about a vacationing family who is run off an isolated highway at night in West Texas by three reckless, dangerous thugs (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Karl Glusman, and Robert Aramayo) and the distraught husband/father (Jake Gyllenhaal) begins working with a sickly, puffing Lone Star detective (Michael Shannon) to find the whereabouts of his redheaded wife (Isla Fisher) and middle-finger-raising teenage daughter (Elle Bamber).
