Actor turned writer/director Joel Edgerton gives audiences a nicely wrapped present with his directorial feature film debut, THE GIFT. Edgerton delivers a great performance along with Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall in a movie that delivers all the elements of a good thriller. It's refreshing to watch an entertaining movie that's devoid of any superheroes or a reboot of a previous movie. Here are six other reasons to see this movie.
In THE GIFT, Simon (Bateman) and Robyn (Hall) relocate to a different city to start a new life when Simon's high school acquaintance enters the picture, and starts dropping by unexpectedly and bearing gifts.
3) Good twists
4) Edgerton's character is truly creepy
5) Good old-fashioned thriller with an original story
6) Listen for clues that pay off in the end
