The trailer for Nocturnal Animals has all sorts of visual decadence, and all manner of intrigue and mystery. Amy Adams leads an impressive cast, and this is certainly going to be a delight to look at if nothing else.
Here is the trailer:
Here’s the IMDb synopsis:
A “story inside a story,” in which the first part follows a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second element follows the actual manuscript, called “Nocturnal Animals,” which revolves around a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly. It also continues to follow the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.
It definitely has that Lynchian Lost Highway vibe to it, but it will be a bit more stylish I’ massing, coming from the Tom Ford angle. The fashion designer’s first film, A Single Man, was pretty great in it’s own right.
Nocturnal Animals stars Adams – who is poised to have a pretty big autumn – Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Isla Fisher (just to confuse everyone), Armie Hammer, Laura Linney and Michael Sheen among others. It’s based on the novel Tony and Susan by Austin Wright, and it will open December 9.
