Tom Ford’s follow-up to “A Single Man,” “Nocturnal Animals,” has been generating buzz since its premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Winning the festival’s Grand Jury Prize, the film received critical acclaim, with IndieWire’s Ben Croll calling it “an impressively ambitious effort…that is almost as pleasurable to reflect on as it is to actually watch,” in his A- review.

The one-sheet shows a close up of Adams with a shadow of Gyllenhaal reflected on her face. The phrase “When you love someone you can’t just throw it away” is seen at the bottom.

The haunting psychological thriller is based on Austin Wright’s 1993 novel “Tony and Susan,” and tells the story of Susan (Adams), a successful art gallery owner who receives a manuscript written by her ex-husband (Gyllenhaal) despite being out of contact with him for years. Dedicated to her, what shocks Susan the most is that it details a terrifying crime that she interprets as him wanting to exact revenge. Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher and Michael Sheen co-star.
