The Gift Kept Me Guessing (No Spoilers)

This is going to be a much shorter post that I intended it to be. I saw The Gift yesterday and it was a really good movie. It still sits at a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and it deserves it. I highly recommend this movie if you’re a fan of psychological thrillers. Jason Bateman was great in this movie and it was nice to see him in something other than a comedy. Joel Edgerton made his directorial debut with this film and he also wrote and starred in it. He played the awkward, creepy guy part really well. Some of the conversations between Gordo (Edgerton) and Simon (Bateman) were painful to watch because of how awkward they were. Overall the performances from the main actors were excellent. This movie is a bit of a slow burn, nothing really starts happening until later in the movie. I don’t mind a good slow burn like this, when everything finally comes out in the end it’s quick a shock. This is easily one of the most fucked up movies I’ve seen in a while. I can’t say a whole lot about the plot without ruining it so I’m just going to leave it vague. That’s why this is going to be such a short post, I don’t want to give anything away because I think everyone should just go and see the movie. This is a movie that keeps you guessing until the very end. I was hooked into it from the first trailer I saw and it was definitely worth seeing at the theater. That’s all I really want to say about The Gift, so go see it! See ya next time!
