GONE GIRL screenplay
“Holy f@#$ “- that’s exactly what I said at the post climatic moment when Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) enters amidst the media personnel with her face, body bloodied and falls into her husband Nick Dunne’s (Ben Affleck) arms. ‘You-fucking-bitch’ are the only words Nick manages to mouth in a subtle desperate whisper. It’s the moment when I wished for a beautiful relationship like theirs. 😈 Jokes apart…The gone girl screenplay is a delight to read. A bit long at 177 pages but nonetheless extremely engaging, just like Gillian Flynn’s books. Once you pick up the Gone girl screenplay, you ain’t going to put it down.
