The Gift is a movie starring Jason Bateman. A character I never imagined him playing. I guess that’s the benefit of being an actor. You get to portray characters/people you never thought you’ll be.
The movie begins when Bateman and his wife move from Chicago to California for a new job. Bateman’s character, Simon grew up in California and lives near or in the town he grew up. He bumps into an old classmate. He says his name is Gordo. It takes Simon a few minutes to remember who this person was.
He says that they should get together and catch up, not knowing that Gordo would drop by their house unannounced when the wife is home alone. He leaves “gifts” at the front door which starts making Simo and Robin start to believe that there is something going on.
There was a note that Gordo leaves that makes Robin question about what happened in high school. Simon denies any thing that happened, if anything happened. Robin starts to do in searching to get answers. She’s told something and there is more than one side to the story.
And I’m going to leave it at that. Watch the Gift and figure out what you think happened.
