Saw the THE GIFT this morning, starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall (very sexy in this one), and Joel Edgerton, who also wrote and directed the film. Really liked it! With a title like THE GIFT, it should be a romantic, chick flick, date movie, right? Well, it isn't by a long shot. Having said that –– that it isn't a chick flick –– would also be a lie, because this film is very much focused on the female lead and what, I expect, might go through the minds of many women. Writer/director/actor Joel Edgerton did a great job of building a slow burn (with some good jumps) into a very psychological thriller of injustice and justice served cold. Check it out if you can.
