★★★★★ The Guardian
Amy Adams plays Susan, a prosperous, disillusioned gallery-owner who is deeply affected when a manuscript written by her ex-husband and dedicated to her, arrives at her home. Afflicted by sleepless nights, she recalls the betrayal she committed that ended her marriage as she reads the book, a menacing story that plays out onscreen as she envisages it, with her ex-husband (Jake Gyllenhaal) assuming the role of a man who, after suffering unimaginable loss, seeks revenge with the help of an intrepid detective (Michael Shannon). An astute psychological thriller with rare depth, this is worthy of the praise it has already received. (Notes by Alice Butler.)
