Slow but suspenseful with fabulous acting

"The Gift" is one of the better psychological thrillers I have watched in a long..long time.The plot is something that I donot want to disclose here.The film makes use of moody lighting and eerie sounds and its good that the violence and gore is kept to the minimum.Superbly enacted by Joel Edgerton( who is one of the directors too),Rebeccca Hall and Jason Bateman ,all wonderfully restrained,this one is for lovers of thrillers and does take your patience and one has to keenly observe the dialogue which one of the major plus points.Worth watching.
