The Gift (2015)

The Gift poster

This has been a bumper year for actor Joel Edgerton. As well as giving a great role wonderful impact in Black Mass, he has made his feature writing and directing debut in this superb suburban thriller about smug marrieds whose life is blighted when the husband’s old school acquaintance turns up with gifts … that keep on giving. Really smart writing and staging assisted by convincing performances from Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Edgerton himself as their nemesis. Quite the ironic home invasion film, actually.
