GONE GIRL - directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn - unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick's portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? (c) Fox

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is the most elegant, exquisitely made trash."
‑ Christy Lemire, ChristyLemire.com
"In the film's final stages [Fincher] seems to be relying entirely on craft - but, boy, is it effective craft."
‑ Bob Mondello, NPR
"Gone Girl, for the most part, feels like an excellent thriller trapped within the confines of a bloated (and palpably plodding) drama..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Gone Girl lives up to the hype."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"It's undeniably entertaining to see a craftsman such as Fincher explore Flynn's thesis by way of rollicking popcorn cinema."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Fincher is as Fincher does. And what Fincher does better than almost anyone is create moody, meticulously crafted thrillers that straddle the divide between genre and art."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"The film's stabs at social commentary -- the constant barrage of tabloid TV coverage -- are crushingly obvious."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Gone Girl is a dark and intelligent thriller that plays to Fincher's magnetising style, the two really are a match made in heaven."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"Something close to a mechanically flawless thriller."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Their character hell is our luxuriant garden of human folly."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"Gone Girl is a sick movie, but it's a lumbering, anti-imaginative kind of sick."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Once you release the movie from the demand that it be significant, there are a number of achievements."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Under the guidance of the remarkable David Fincher, this is one of those rare, elusive endeavors that contains nearly every important quality I cherish about moviemaking."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"The spot-on casting carries over to the supporting cast: This thriller has the sort of lineup that will draw viewers to IMDb.com, possibly crashing its server."
‑ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"Deeply cynical, darkly funny, sometimes brutal, very powerful filmmaking that may make you a little queasy, but will almost certainly entertain you to no end."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
