The Gift (2008)

Directed by
Niels Gråbøl

Actor Joel Edgerton's feature debut as director is a self-written thriller in which he stars alongside Rebecca Hall and Jason Bateman. Simon and his beloved wife Robyn have moved from Chicago to Los Angeles so he can take a high-powered job in security systems. The couple are settling in nicely when, while out shopping for items for their swish new home, they bump into Gordo, one of Simon's old schoolmates. It's an awkward encounter, with Gordo intensely keen to welcome the couple to LA, while Simon is at best ambivalent to the man. Simon's irritation is exacerbated when Gordo starts turning up at their house unannounced and leaving gifts for them on their doorstep. Then events take a seemingly more sinister course. But Gordo's unwanted intrusion into their lives also leads Robyn to discover troubling truths about her husband. Premiere.
