‘The Gift’

The_Gift_2015_Film_Poster1An intelligent and effective thriller, The Gift is a no-nonsense chiller of a story.

It’s hardly a genre buster, but Australian Joel Edgerton, in his feature film debut as director, is in his element – his deft control of pace, character and tone a highlight. Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Warrior) also stars, alongside against-type Jason Bateman (Juno, Horrible Bosses) and Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3, The Town). Intriguing.
