A "story inside a story," in which the first part follows a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second element follows the actual manuscript, called "Nocturnal Animals," which revolves around a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly. It also continues to follow the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.
During the scene where Susan is walking to her office, she walks by a poster that reads "REVENGE" and stops to look at it. See more »
Susan Morrow leaves Tony Morrow who is of graduate school age and meets Hutton who is presumably her age in the movie and they have a daughter who is now college aged. Hutton appeared to be much younger than Susan's character like in his early 30's which is true in real life. So he could not have a college age daughter with her. See more »

I fell into this movie not really knowing a thing about it. A friend told me to watch it and I went for it. I'm so glad that I did. For starters, the score is amazing. It really has a way of putting you in a mood and refusing to let go.
From the onset of the movie, we see an unhappy Susan in her unhappy life with her handsome husband in a luxurious and over-the-top home. These material goods bring her no joy and we can see that her life is in shambles.
As the movie progresses, we start to see why. I don't want to spoil this one. It's best to go in blind and let the movie do what it does best. With one of the most tense scenes I've seen in years, Ford and Editor Joan Sobel pull off a masterpiece with dual storytelling aspects that had me deeply invested in both storylines up until the very end of the film.
Give this one a watch but prepare to really have your mind open up into some places I never knew it could go.
