“Gone Girl” is the one of the best films to hit the theaters in a long time hailing from the book of the same name. The reason for “Gone Girl’s” success is that it is an utterly addictive story that pulls you in from the start with characters that you’re never 100 percent sure about and has a plot with more twists and turns than a roller-coaster.

A few weeks ago I attended a discussion led by Professor Jesse Tauriac and Reverend Thomas Sullivan on race and the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Fall is a great season for movies as the year winds down the awards race heats up. With cer- emonies like the Oscars and the Golden Globes in directors’ sights, this can be an exciting time of year for any film aficionado. Here are some picks for fall movies to keep an eye out for.

Gone Girl (October 3)

Gone Girl is the film adaptation by the best- selling novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn, who also wrote the screenplay. This highly anticipated mystery-thriller depicts the story of Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) a woman who disappears and her husband, Nick (Ben Affleck), is ultimately suspected of killing her. The novel took readers down a twisted path of wondering “What happened to Amy?” and, if judging by the film’s trailer, it seems like the adaptation will do just the same. Readers of the book will also be in for a surprise during the film, as Flynn stated the movie will deviate from the book and will be structured differently. Gone Girl will also feature Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry.
