Susan (Adams) lives a privileged but lonely life in Los Angeles with her oft-absent husband. One day she receives a novel, "Nocturnal Animals," written by her ex-husband Edward (Gyllenhaal).It sparks a bout of soul-searching from Susan, with flash-backs of her life with Edward, and unveils a dark secret.Ford, who adapted the screenplay from Austin Wright's 1993 book "Tony and Susan," said "if it doesn't stay with you, haunt you, challenge you, it's not a successful film for me".He added that there was a lot of himself in all three characters – Susan, Tony and Edward – Susan's "lack of self-confidence," Tony and Edward who are sensitive rather than dominant.Adams manages to make troubled Susan sympathetic, something she said she found difficult.
