Gone Girl (2014)

It's that age old story - Girl meets boy.  Girl marries boy.  Girl fakes death hoping to frame boy for murder.  I'm not a huge David Fincher fan but I thoroughly enjoyed his epic adaption of Gillian Flynn's novel about marriage in the post-honeymoon phase.  Rosamund Pike is rather amazing ;-) playing sociopathic Amy, whose voice-overs I found enthralling, while Ben Affleck does an exquisite job playing himself.  Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' score is particularly hypnotic.  I thought the movie was going to end in about four different places, but I didn't mind it's daunting running time.

Gone Girl was filmed in Cape Girardeau, MO, Makanda, IL, Panorama City, Universal City, Hollywood & Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY

I'm not a huge reader (unless it's entertainment related) but this bookstore is not your typical Barnes and Noble and definitely worth checking out.
