I started reading this book a few months ago, but I never finished it. I did, however, go watch this movie the first week it was released.
With his wife’s disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent.
I had no clue how the story would play out, and that’s what made this movie shine: the surprises. Gone Girl is dark, with witty humor. The story leaves you laughing, while still sitting on the edge of your seat, as you try to understand what the hell is going on. This is one of my favorite films of the year.
