Gone Girl, a mystery thriller is the story of a prolific female writer Amy and her relationship with her unfaithful husband Nick. Based on a novel by Gillian Flynn, the plot may have been familiar to those who have read the novel. But for those of you who haven’t, you guys are in for some mind-boggling, enigmatic maze of events as they happen.

The story follows starts off when the Amazing Amy mysteriously goes missing on their fifth marriage anniversary from their house, a few years after having moved back to her husband’s native town. The husband, a below ordinary guy, financially dependent on his wife, becomes the prime suspect after a number of revelations in the investigations that follow and gets into the spotlight, followed by media freak shows everywhere, allegations, accusations and what not. Every clue (since its Amy’s favorite game) leads back to Nick, suggesting that he has murdered her because of their not-so-successful marriage. The rest of the story, you got to watch it to know it.
The movie stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as the male and female lead casts respectively, have given a stupendous performance throughout the film. All characters have been very well played but Carrie Coon who plays Nick’s sister Margo has also delivered a noteworthy performance.
So if you are looking for a not-your-average mystery film, I suggest you reorder your list because this movie has got everything that you could ever ask for. Happy watching.
