Multi-layered thrilling ride!

On the day of their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) returns home to find that his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) is missing. In the ensuing media frenzy, suspicions arise that Nick murdered her, and his awkward behavior doesn't help to convince the media and the people otherwise.

Dark mystery film about murder, deception and manipulation based on a bestselling novel. The film will keep you at the edge of your seat! Intelligent storytelling, great direction by David and amazing performances by cast. Rosamund was marvelous and I'm going to be very disappointed if she's not nominated for the Academy Award, Golden Globe or any other big award. The only thing I would change is the ending but just because the message is not what I was hoping for. Everything else is superb! The film is visually stunning, the movie score is very intense and haunting and the element of the realism is a huge reason why it's so captivating! Loved it! Not perfect but still crazy good! A brilliant must see thriller! 4/5
