Watch this if you liked: “A Single Man”

The Good, the Bad and the Hidden Threat:

• A story within a story which was delivered stylishly but also full of thrills.

• Directed by fashion designer Tom Ford, the film is pure perfection, blending two rather incongruous styles within one feature-length film.

• With their superb performances, A-listers Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal prove that both of them are worthy of their reputations as great actors.


• The film is based on the book "Tony and Susan". In the book, Tony writes a novel which is titled "Nocturnal Animals", so the writer decided to choose that title for the movie instead.
