Plot Summary

Simon and Robyn are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon's high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn't recognize Gordo at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove troubling, a horrifying secret from the past is uncovered after more than 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?

Edit
Trivia As he wanted to focus on directing, Joel Edgerton filmed his own scenes as Gordo two weeks into shooting and completed them in seven days. See more »
Goofs While at Gordo's "dinner party", Simon does a small diatribe about Gordo. Later, we find that Gordo recorded them while he left the house for a few minutes. The captured audio played later in the movie does not match exactly what Simon said. See more »
