Nocturnal Animals” is a film that takes place in three different worlds: present day, flashbacks, and a live-action depiction of a manuscript sent to Amy Adams’s character Susan by her ex-husband, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. The second feature film from designer-turned-director Tom Ford, the movie is based on the 1993 Austin Wright novel “Tony and Susan.”

Though the manuscript in the film–also called “Nocturnal Animals–is a fictional story about a horrific crime, Ford brings the unpublished novel to life within the context of the movie by having Gyllenhaal play both Adams’ ex-husband and the main character of the manuscript.

It’s been six years since Ford’s directorial debut “A Single Man,” but the beautifully interwoven narratives of the haunting “Nocturnal Animals” make it well worth the wait. The three different worlds within the movie also feel truly distinct, as if three different films were seamlessly combined into a unified whole.

The first of the below clips is a flashback to Adams and Gyllenhaal’s chance encounter in New York City. It’s followed by a scene from the unpublished novel, wherein a detective played by Michael Shannon interrogates a suspect about the horrific crime mentioned above. The final clip shows Adams’ character of Susan in present day.
