The Gift

A young married couple's lives are thrown into a harrowing tailspin when an acquaintance from the husband's past brings mysterious gifts and a horrifying secret to light after more than 20 years.

The Gift is an 2015 American psychological thriller film written, produced, and directed by Joel Edgerton, making his directorial debut. The film stars Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, and Edgerton, and was released in the United States on August 7, 2015 by STX Entertainment.

Plot:
A young married couple, Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn Callen (Rebecca Hall), are living what appears to be a picture-perfect life. They relocate from Chicago to a suburban Los Angeles neighbourhood after Simon finds a new job outside the city. While out buying supplies for their new home, they run into Gordon "Gordo" Moseley (Joel Edgerton), a former high school classmate of Simon's who Simon claims to have completely forgotten about. Soon after, he begins dropping in unannounced, usually when Simon is at work, and sends many gifts including koi fish for Robyn's empty pond.
