The gift is now out on DVD, me and my mom wanted to watch this at the cinema but when we finally got around to it, the showings had dropped and was on really late at night. You all will know I'm a bit of a horror buff, at the moment I've been a bit bored with the influx of ghost and spirt films, so The Gift made a refreshing change. This thriller has a real quite shocking sticking ending, which actually really surprised me. I liked the hidden effect of bullies always get their karma in the end. The gift is easily the best thriller I've seen this year.
Simon (Jason Bateman; Horrible Bosses, TV’s Arrested Development) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall; Transcendence, Iron Man 3, The Prestige) are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo (Joel Edgerton) at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts, a horrifying secret from the past is uncovered. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, her world unravels and she starts to ask the question: how well do we really know the people closest to us?
Allison Tolman (TV’s Fargo) also stars in this chilling feature directorial debut from acclaimed actor and writer Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty, Warrior) who produces alongside Jason Blum of Blumhouse (Sinister, Insidious, The Purge).
