Nocturnal Animals starts off in a very weird way, which may make you uncomfortable and dread what is to come. Now having said that, brace yourself for what is to come because it is an amazing ride of two parallel stories that are more intertwined then you think. The story from the book is everything great about this film, with great performances from everyone involved in the traumatic events. The ending may leave you with an empty feeling or make you think about what you just saw and come to your own conclusions. I was impressed with the writing and only wish I was that talented.
