Nick and Amy Dunne are the poster-couple for Happily Ever After... until Amy disappears. He reports her missing, ushering in the scrutiny of police and media alike, but as the fairy-tale nature of his marriage is proven to be false, Nick Dunne unravels while the world publicly wonders: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? Directed by master-of-suspenseful-style David Fincher, the film begs not just the question of ‘whodunnit’, but also, ‘whydunnit’ which, when considered in tandem, make for a vastly more fascinating film. The characters scheme and dodge and parry, scored by wonder-twin duo Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor, making for a film about the man’s darker side with what, “sounds like the wah-wah pedal of Satan.” (Anthony Lane, New Yorker) What’s not to love?
