Joel’s review of Gone Girl (2014)

During our recent hotel stay, we rented Gone Girl (2014). This is that David Fincher film starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Based on a novel by the same name by Gillian Flynn, the book’s author also wrote the screenplay. Besides Affleck and Pike, the film has strong cast of supporting actors and actresses:

  • Carrie Coon
  • Neil Patrick Harris
  • Tyler Perry
  • Kim Dickens
  • Emily Ratajkowski
  • Sela Ward
  • Missi Pyle

The story is basically about the marriage between Nick and Amy Dunne. On the morning of their 5th wedding anniversary, Nick comes back to his house to find Amy missing from what now looks like a crime scene in their house. As the days pass after Amy’s disappearance, and the search for Amy continues, both the local police and the public begin to question Nick’s initially assumed innocence. I won’t reveal much more than that.

It was an interesting film, and the film’s plot continued way past where I thought it would end. Yes, there was one or two plot holes that I’m still trying to wrap my head around, but certainly a worthwhile film to rent. I don’t think you need to own this though. One viewing is enough.
