This just might be one of my favorite movies
Love it didn't want it to end and I'm not a big fan of Jason Bateman.
They all played their part well.
Didn't want the movie to end.
I just chose this movie to see because of the time I didn't know what kind of movie it was but from the minute it started you got this weird feeling until it really started to take off.

Very good movie! Not what you'd expect. A very unusual role for Jason Bateman, and he nails it. Really like the ending which leaves you wondering. Excellent job Jason!

Great suspenseful movie.

I usually avoid movies with Jason Bateman in them, because they are usually just a continuous flow of vulgar words.

But this is not like that, this has good acting and a very clever story line.

Somewhere in the world a film critic will come up with the line The gift: A movie that keeps on giving. I'm not going to use that line, I just going to give to you straight. "The Gift" is a uneasy thriller that digs up a horrible past and it keeps digging. It's like Adrienne Shelly reworte "Waitress" into a thriller. Some of the stuff in the movie are linked to the 2007 movie that Shelly has directed before she died.. Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall had movied into a new hiome. I like the new home, It's much better than the homes in past movies. When they're moving in a man named Gordan) played by Joel Edgeton who keeps coming up to their doorstep and drop off one gift after another. After he keeps showing up so many times, the couple told him not to come around again. (It's too bad that the song "Don't Come Aeound Here No More" isn't in the movie) From here on, things get a little creepy. But I can't reveal the ending, but it has a major twist. It's like sitting though the 2014 movie "Maleficent" where you can't tell who's the good guy or who's that villain. At first I though "The Gift" will be like another "Fatal Attraction," but the movie takes a turn that suggest otherwise.
