Tom Ford’s second film is slick and stylized like Italian leather

After making waves with his debut A Single Man, fashion designer-turned-film director Tom Ford follows up with a neo-noir psycho thriller. Based on a novel by Austin Wright, Nocturnal Animals delves into the relationship of Susan Morrow (Amy Adams) and Edward Sheffield (Jake Gyllenhaal), a divorced couple estranged for years.

Despite becoming a successful art dealer, Susan finds her new life and husband unsatisfying. She unexpectedly receives a book dedicated to her, written by her ex. Spurred by the murder story, Susan finds herself reevaluating the choices she made and is finally forced to confront her past.
