1. Nocturnal Animals (Tom Ford, 2016), featuring Amy Adams as Susan, an art gallery owner, who’s happily married to her second husband. Susan receives a mysterious package in the mail that contains the manuscript from the novel her first husband (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) had been writing about. The novel is dedicated to her, but not in the way we would hope…it’s his revenge for their failed marriage. The novel tells a story of a man (the first husband) who watches a family vacation with his wife (Susan) and daughter turn into a nightmare. Susan must read the manuscript and reexamine some dark memories from her past.
Nocturnal Animals hit cinemas back in October 2016, and is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD starting today, 13 March.
