‘Nocturnal Animals’ Trailer: Amy Adams Explores Dark Past With Jake Gyllenhaal in Tom Ford Thriller [VIDEO]

Tom Ford makes a return to the big screen with his new film “Nocturnal Animals” starring Amy AdamsJake Gyllenhaal and Michael Shannon.

The film is an adaptation of the novel “Tony and Susan” written by Austin Wright. It tells a love-strained story of a woman (Amy Adams) whose life starts to mirror the sadistic novel her ex-husband (Jake Gyllenhaal) wrote and dedicated to her. While she (Adams) is terrified by the violence and torture written about her, she admits to “doing something horrible to him.” This divorced couple will uncover dark-truths about themselves and one another in their twisted love-affair.

In his review for Variety at the Venice Film Festival where the film premiered, critic Owen Gleiberman wrote that Ford “doesn’t just recycle pulp — he aestheticizes it by taking it dead seriously. He strives to turn pulp into art.”

The film took home the Grand Jury Prize Award at the 2016 Venice International Film Festival and also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The cast also includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Karl Glusman, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough and Michael Sheen.

“Nocturnal Animal” is set to open in select theaters Nov. 18 and expand nationwide Dec. 9.
