Regarding the casting of the title character, David Fincher said he wanted an actress with a Faye Dunaway type of persona. The director told Playboy magazine, "I wanted Faye Dunaway in Chinatown, where you think, 'This person has experienced avenues of pain that no one can articulate'. Or Faye in Network, where it's, 'You're never going to get to the bottom of this, so just stop'. It's crazy how much Rosamund reminds me of Faye." See more »

Having read the book, it was not an easy feat who will be able to bring to life the leading character of the book, which is Amy Dunne. Her character is so complex, that Rosamund Pike deserves all awards that will be coming to her. She was able to give Amy the mysterious vibe but likable aura of a socialite New Yorker.
The score of the film is perfect, as it builds up suspense and the tone of the story. Great supporting performance by Ben Affleck, and the actress who plays her sister. Great ensemble cast who works together to delivery the dark humor lines in the film.
This movie will definitely be an instant classic and I cant wait to watch it again!
