It’s taken seven years, but Tom Ford has made his return to the world of feature filmmaking. “Nocturnal Animals,” which opens in limited release this month, marks the fashion designer’s sophomore effort after “A Single Man.” Focus Features just released a new featurette for the drama starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. Watch it below.
Gyllenhaal discusses the film’s exploration of unrequited love, saying that “Nocturnal Animals” is about “what we sacrifice when you don’t follow your heart.” “The message is connection and loyalty,” adds Ford. “When you have someone important, someone that you love, don’t throw them away. Don’t let them go.”
Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough and Michael Sheen also star in the film, which Ford adapted from Austin Wright’s novel “Tony and Susan.” Focus Features will release “Nocturnal Animals” in select cities on November 18 before expanding nationwide on December 9.
