Movie Review of Gone Girl

Sydney Huff, Staff Writer

Gone Girl takes place in the town of North Carthage, Missouri. The movie has been highly anticipated in this area because many  of the scenes were actually filmed in Cape Girardeau, MO.

In the movie, Nick Dunne who is played by Ben Affleck returns home from the bar that he owns on his fifth wedding anniversary to find his wife missing. He walked in their house and found a glass coffee table broken with her blood smeared on some kitchen cabinets. Nick and his wife, Amy did not have a good marriage and were on the verge of a divorce. At the beginning, it appears that his wife was taken by someone but soon the police come to believe that Nick killed her.

As soon as Nick’s mistress goes public he looks extremely guilty in the public eye. Throughout the story is Nick and his sister try to find out what really happened to Amy and why he is being blamed. Gone Girl had an excellent plot that had me on the edge of my seat the entire movie. I highly recommend anyone to see it. You will never expect how this movie ends.
