Film review: Gone Girl

Gone Girl contains numerous plot twists. But don’t worry: This review, amazingly, manages not to reveal a single one of them.

Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) lives in a beautiful house in North Carthage, a small town in Missouri, with his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike), a graduate of both Harvard and Yale who is from New York City but sounds like a Brit, but while at work on the day of his fifth wedding anniversary, he gets a call from a neighbor who says there is something wrong at the couple’s house: Their cat is outside, and the front door is open. Nick arrives to find a glass table smashed on the floor in the living room and no trace of his wife, who usually spends most of her time at home while he is at the bar he runs with his twin sister, Margo (Carrie Coon, who excels in her début role in a feature film).

Gone Girl, based on the chart-topping New York Times bestseller by Gillian Flynn, is the latest film by the master of the tense and information-heavy mystery film, David Fincher, who has made his first film since The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was released in the Czech Republic at the beginning of 2012.
