Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon and Armie Hammer headline the second feature from director Tom Ford (A SINGLE MAN), about a woman who is forced to confront the demons of her past as she is drawn into the world of a thriller novel written by her ex-husband.

In his second feature, NOCTURNAL ANIMALS, Tom Ford has brilliantly assembled, unsettling work that signals a bold step forward for the fashion designer/film director after his well-received debut, A Single Man. Stylish and gorgeous to look at, NOCTURNAL ANIMALS is far more than an exercise in aesthetics as it turns its gaze on the complicated inner life of a middle-aged woman whose world is about to turn upside down.

Susan (Amy Adams) is a successful Los Angeles art-gallery owner who wants for very little, yet she finds her paradise troubled by the frequent absences of her second husband (Armie Hammer), a handsome young doctor, due to his constant traveling. Susan is rattled further when a manuscript arrives on her desk, written by her long-estranged first husband, Tony (Jake Gyllenhaal).

Alone, with her current husband away in New York, Susan opens the manuscript and is propelled into the fictional life of a teacher (also Gyllenhaal) whose drive to his summer house with his family is about to turn into a nightmare. As Susan gets deeper into the book, she is forced to examine her past. Oscillating effortlessly between Susan’s reality and the story within a story, Ford slowly and meticulously turns the screws, delving into suspense while keeping a firm hand on the disturbing drama.

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS is both a compelling thriller and a psychological study of a woman in crisis. Ably supported by his superb cast, Ford never puts a foot wrong as he deftly navigates these two sides; his crisp direction suits the material. The result is a sheer delight from beginning to end.

“Confidently dovetailing three strands that depict present and past reality, as well as a dark fictional detour that functions as a blunt real-life rebuke, the film once again demonstrates that Ford is both an intoxicating sensualist and an accomplished storyteller, with as fine an eye for character detail as he has for color and composition.”

“Some of the scenes in the LA art world are a bit broad. But this is a terrifically absorbing thriller with that vodka-kick of pure malice.”

“With everything going on, Nocturnal Animals is the sort of narrative and tonal minefield that a lesser director could easily have gotten lost in. Ford allows us to consider and cherish each unique thread and wonder just how it could all possibly come together.”

“Nocturnal Animals is an impressively ambitious effort, one part mean Texas thriller, one part middle-age melodrama, and makes for a meta-textual riddle that is almost as pleasurable to reflect on as it to actually watch.”

“Ford is a true moviemaker — a social observer who’s a junkie for sensation and narrative. He has structured Nocturnal Animals beautifully, so that the past feeds into the present, and fiction into reality.”

“A work of exceptional, undeniable craft, but it’s also a movie that’s meant to stick to you a little bit.”

“Nocturnal Animals employs one of the most inventive uses of neo noir tropes and techniques I have seen in recent years. Intense, insightful, and strangely powerful, Tom Ford’s adaptation of Austin Wright’s novel, Tony and Susan, assumes an intelligent audience.”
