The Gift


thegiftAfter moving into a suburban Los Angeles neighborhood, an affluent couple (Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall) run into ā€œGordoā€ Mosley (Joel Edgerton), a high-school acquaintance who clearly wants to be a part of their lifeā€¦ Edgertonā€™s directing debut comes in the shape of what initially looks like a throwback to early 1990s psychopath thrillers. It often follows that formula, but also wisely deviates from it and makes us think about the potential consequences of our behavior in high school. Well-staged, with a tense atmosphere, the story also stubbornly refuses to turn its characters into caricatures and instead reveals new layers.

2015-U.S. 108 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed byĀ Joel Edgerton. Cast: Jason Bateman (Simon Callum), Rebecca Hall (Robyn Callum), Joel Edgerton (Gordon ā€œGordoā€ Mosley), Tim Griffin, Allison Tolman, Beau Knapp.

Trivia: Co-produced by Edgerton.
