Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star in this haunting romantic thriller from acclaimed writer/director Tom Ford (A Single Man). Susan (Amy Adams) is living through an unfulfilling marriage when she receives a package containing a novel manuscript from her ex-husband, Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal). The novel is dedicated to her but its content is violent and devastating. Susan cannot help but reminisce over her past love story with the author. Increasingly she interprets the book as a tale of revenge, a tale that forces her to re-evaluate the choices that she has made, and reawakens a love that she feared was lost. Also starring Armie Hammer and Michael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals is a thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension.

The cinematography is fantastic, and the story overall has a very David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick feel to both its look, story and presentation.
Without looking up what "it actually all means" online, heres what I took away from it. Spoilers ofcourse.
This is a film, which is about a women, Adams, whom left an ex husband 20 years ago, for selfish reasons, and also aborted his/her child without telling him about it and he found out.
Basically, Gyllenhaal whom plays the ex, is a writer and he wrote a novel which is basically his feelings and memory of the experience translated into fiction. So the movie, is basically her reading it, and seeing the novel played out in real time as she reads, and basically how this effects her.... in a somewhat humorous way it is passive aggressiveness on the part of her ex, taken to the 1000% degree.
Of course this is a very Shortened version of my interpretation, if you are a fan of films by David Lynch, basically I would call this a lighter version of him...
This definitely is not meant for everyone, but, If you like unique story telling give It a go.
The ending of this movie had my mind mulling it over for days until I finally figured it out. Now, some may not like that the ending doesn't really spoon-feed the viewer but I loved it.
This movie is not an easy one to watch, not because it drags, not because of the acting....but because of the stories subject matter. Rest assured, this one is not for kids but it does tell more than one story, it's sort of like an onion that reveals more layers as you watch it.
I admit I did at times find myself a bit confused as the story bounced between the main characters and the story within the story but I eventually did catch on.
I will say, if you are a viewer that doesn't want to have to think about the movie you are watching, if you just want to sit back and absorb what is on the screen this may not be for you but I am a viewer that enjoys unraveling things. I like the challenge of figuring things out before the end of the movie and this time....I didn't. My mind hung on to that ending and I loved it!!! Even though there were scenes in the movie that simply made me cringe, due to it's very dark topics.
Oh, fair warning....the opening is a shocker you won't expect at all ;-)
LOL, I actually had to watch a spoiler review/analysis video on Youtube to really get what this movie was all about. Kinda like when I watched Enemy. Anyways, I know i'm not the only one, so I don't feel all that bad about it, but - suffice to say, its deep and really worthy of examination.
