The trailer for 'Nocturnal Animals' flirts a femme fatale feel, with Jake Gyllenhaal being the crushee to Amy Adams' crusher. At least, that's what appears on the surface. Chances are the storyline goes much deeper than that. We'll find out soon enough. The thriller hits theaters on November 18.
Ever wonder why it's socially acceptable to say one person has a 'crush' on another, especially when that word literally means, 'to squeeze with a force that destroys'? Wha? When we say the phrase, we usually mean 'to be infatuated with' another person. How confusing! This film seems to epitomize this etymological blunder, in a 'be careful what you wish for' kind of way.
The cinematography and art direction is delicious. Tom Ford is the creative force behind the entire film. His signature jewel-toned color palettes evoke specific emotions for each character, conveying meaning through imagery and not just dialogue. Those dark cherry lips on Amy pop loudly against her copper locks.
