Gone Girl

Gone Girl
From the outside, Nick and Amy Dunne have the perfect marriage. But do they? When Amy goes missing on their fifth anniversary, the police and media scrutiny focuses on Nick. As the clues start and surface and the truth slowly reveals itself, did Nick murder his wife or is Amy seeking revenge against her husband? Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Gone Girl”.

∙ Amy and Nick meet at a party. She’s talking to him about who she is as she’s walking. In the front, close-up view of her when she stops and says “C, I write personality quizzes for a magazine,” she’s holding her beer at the very top of the bottle’s neck. It cuts to a rear/left side view of Amy (front of Nick) when he starts to speak and Amy’s holding the beer bottle around the middle. It cuts back to the original view when he makes the “Middling Warlord Weekly” comment and she’s holding the bottle around the neck again.

∙ Nick is being interrogated by Detective Rhonda Boney and Officer James Gilpin for the first time at the police station. When she asks Nick about him not calling his wife’s parents, the front view of Nick when he says “you can’t get a signal in this building,” shows both of his hands are empty. It cuts to a right side view when he says “I’ve been in here talking to you,” and he’s holding his cell phone in his left hand.

∙ When Nick begins to speak at the candlelight vigil, the front view of him shows the edges of his shirt collar are over his jacket lapel. It cuts to a rear view and then back to the front view and the right side of his shirt collar is tucked under the jacket. The collar alternates from being over the lapel to under it through the rest of the scene.

“Gone Girl” (2014) stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon and Kim Dickens. It runs 149 minutes and is rated R for a scene of bloody violence, some strong sexual content/nudity, and language.
