On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife, Amy, has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?
WOW. That is pretty much what my reaction was after watching the movie. I also read the book right after because I wanted to compare the two. Even though the movie took out some characters and changed a bit of the plot, it still stayed the same which I’m completely happy with. I guess that’s what happens when the author actually writes the screenplay instead of giving it to someone else. I loved this movie. It was intense, thought provoking and downright shocking. I watched it with my mom who also thought it was intense.
Twists and turns that even though I thought about it happening, I still couldn’t believe it actually happened. If that made any sense. I was pretty much thinking THIS IS ALL A DREAM RIGHT? At the end, they’re going to wake up and say it’s just a dream? Characters so complex and so developed that I just loved how Gillian went with it. She took marriage to a whole other level and ran with it. Boy did she ever. It’s not a movie for advice at all, since everything is just seriously messed up.
Gone Girl is a must-read and a must-see for any psychological thriller fan! Both Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike are brilliant in it and I can’t rave about this one enough. I loved it. Definitely a memorable movie and book I’ll be telling everyone to watch and read!
BONUS: There’s a mini Amazing Amy book with the Blu-Ray movie..So cute!
