Watch: Nocturnal Animals
Stylish and soaked in suspense, Tom Ford’s latest film is a must-see.
If you loved A Single Man, the fashion designer’s first foray in film, you will adore Nocturnal Animals. The plot centres on a divorced couple, played by Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal, who tread the fine line between all consuming love and heart-wrenching cruelty. When Tony (Gyllenhaal) sends his ex wife Susan (Adams) a chilling manuscript, Susan’s picture perfect LA life is disrupted forever. As the two narratives play out, dark secrets are uncovered and Tony finally seeks his revenge.
Based on the 1993 novel Tony and Susan by Austin Wright, Ford’s sophisticated vision of the story is truly breathtaking. Each shot is a work of art in itself - this is cinematography to obsess over. The fact that Adams’ elegant wardrobe is equally applaudable comes as no surprise.
Gripping and beautiful, this haunting tale is a joy from start to finish. Watch the trailer here.
Nocturnal Animals is on show in the UK from November 4th.
