In addition to Free app of the week, every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week, whose purchase is for $ 3.
The title selected this time was The gift, with Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
The present one thriller psychological, which marks the debut of Joel Edgerton as director.
In it, Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) form a seemingly happy couple who have just moved from Chicago to the protagonist's hometown.
The encounter with an old friend (played by Edgerton himself) triggers a series of events that make the viewer question the characters and their attitudes.
The photography of the film is cold and with light saturations that create an immersive tension throughout the film and leaves the viewer in a constant state of doubt and suspicion.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, also sent us a personalized comment about the film:
I highlight that I consider Joel Edgerton to be one of the good actors that have emerged in recent years, but as a director he has sailed this production within the regular (it is important to highlight that his long career, but with prominence only in recent years).
The script was worked on so that the plot was psychological, more focused on the secrets of the characters, however it was predictable and disoriented.
The good cast is composed of medium level actors and the director himself as the villain of the plot.
I would like to suggest a film by Edgerton which I believe is worthwhile: Warrior, in which he co-stars with the great Tom Hardy.
I also recommend that they soon check out Loving, which according to reviews will be an Oscar-worthy film (with no premiere date in Brazil).
