At a professional and personal low point, art gallery owner Susan (Adams) receives – out of the blue – a manuscript from her novelist ex-husband (Gyllenhaal), who she hasn’t seen in years. 

 

 

Once a naïve romantic, Edward has now produced a vivid, shocking thriller.

 

 

Captivated, Susan, in a film-within-a-film visualises Edward’s tale of a family man (also played by Gyllenhaal) driven to violent revenge and is drawn into a re-evaluation of her life as past, present and fiction become entangled.

She finds herself drawn into a re-evaluation of her life and relationships as past, present and Edward’s fiction become entangled.

Directing a superb ensemble cast, Ford delivers not just the style of A Single Man but also gripping action and savage wit.
