Fashion designer Tom Ford’s hotly anticipated second film, Nocturnal Animals, is now in cinemas. The psychological thriller, which has recently won the Venice Film Festival’s Grand Jury prize, proves that Ford really wants to be taken seriously as a director.

Adapted by Ford from August Wright’s 1993 novel, Tony and Susan, it’s about a successful Los Angeles art-gallery owner (Amy Adams), who is haunted by her ex-husband’s (Jake Gyllenhall) novel. After years apart, she receives a manuscript written by him that tells the story of a teacher who finds a trip with his family turning into a nightmare. It’s a violent thriller that she interprets as a veiled threat and a symbolic revenge tale, forcing her to examine her past and confront some dark truths.

The cast also features Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough, and Michael Sheen, with great photography by Seamus McGarvey and music by Abel Korzeniowski.

Watch the film’s official trailer below:
