The Gift

Actor Joel Edgerton (Warrior, The Great Gatsby) turns writer-director to deliver this mystery-thriller. Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall play a married couple whose lives are "thrown into a harrowing tailspin" when an old high school acquaintance of the husband's shows up. Edgerton takes the plum role of the unwanted house guest who starts delivering an increasingly extravagant string of housewarming gifts--all of them hinting at a nasty secret from the past. The film clearly references such late-'80s/early-'90s yuppies-in-peril films as Fatal Attraction and Single White Female, but Edgerton manages to keep things creepy and surprising throughout. 108 minutes R.
