Nocturnal Animals (2016, dir. Tom Ford)

A woman reads her former husband’s novel. Good-looking though bleak slow-burn thriller intercutting between a novel and its reading; the fiction within the film is more interesting than the frame narrative, though. Michael Shannon superb in support.

Want another opinion from a member of the 255Review crew? Lemonsquirtle’s take on the movie is here.
