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.

Disappointing. Being a fan of Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaals movies, I thought this would be a great watch. Unfortunately, it was an absolute waste of time. The movie is hard to stay in tune with as its boring and fails to reach any real story line. By the end it will make you question any film you go to put on again. Jake Gyllenhaals character is frustrating to watch for how incredibly useless he is and how Aaron Taylor-Johnson received a Golden Globe over other nominees is beyond me. Director Tom Ford is really to blame for this disaster of a movie. If your looking for a thriller or simply a good plot, look somewhere else.
