Movie review: The gift

Good afternoon. Last night I watched a very interesting thriller(not a horror) called The Gift.

The main actors are Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton.

Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) are a young married couple who live a normal life until they randomly meet an acquaintance from Simon’s high school, a guy named Gordo.

After a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts from Gordo, a terrible secret from the past is uncovered after more than 20 years.

As Robyn finds out the real story about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to wonder how well do we really know the people close to us?

This movie is well thought and it keeps the suspense until the end. The acting is high class. 

To be honest, I was surprised to see Bateman in such a movie as he stars mostly in comedies. Edgerton as Gordo was brilliant.

I definitely recommend this movie and even people on IMDB gave this title 7.4.

Here’s a trailer for The Gift :
