On their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife has gone missing. But as time passes, the media and social speculation all start to pointing back to Nick. Did he kill his wife?
Gone Girl is the latest film from director David Fincher who in my eyes does very little wrong. His started his career in the music video business and his first (troubled) feature film was Alien 3. He then went onto direct Fight Club, Panic Room, The Social Network amongst others.
Ben Affleck plays the role of Nick Dunne with Rosamund Pike as his wife Am. The screenplay was written by Gillian Flynn and based upon her own novel. In the transistion from book to screen the entire third act has been rewritten, so even fans of the book will not know what happens at the end.
Gone Girl opens in the US and UK on the 3rd October.
