Being that I cover this stuff practically every day, it’s nice every once in a while to be pleasantly surprised. To have a film pop up that I’d never even heard of until it was suddenly a living, breathing entity that I could look forward to meeting one day. Such is the case with Nocturnal Animals, which I never knew was a thing until this morning. I’m a big fan of several of the actors present, so it’s one I’ll be keeping an eye out for.

Nocturnal Animals features a knockout cast that includes Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Karl Glusman, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough, and Michael Sheen.

Focus Features has just released several character posters for Nocturnal Animals, which you can see right here:

From writer/director Tom Ford comes a haunting romantic thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and themselves in NOCTURNAL ANIMALS.

Director Tom Ford is best known for the Colin Firth film, A Single Man.

Nocturnal Animals comes out in wide release on December 9.
