The Gift

From the producer of ‘Whiplash’, comes a chilling psychological thriller that marks the feature directorial debut of acclaimed actor and writer Joel Edgerton (‘The Great Gatsby’, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, ‘Warrior’).

Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) 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 recognise Gordo (Joel Edgerton) at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove troubling, a horrifying secret from the past is uncovered after more than 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?
