Nocturnal Animals, ou Animaux nocturnes au Québec, est un thriller américain réalisé par Tom Ford et sorti en 2016. Il s'agit de l'adaptation du roman Tony and Susan d'Austin Wright.

Galeriste en vue à Los Angeles, Susan Morrow, la quarantaine, travaille sans passion dans un milieu artistique à l'originalité convenue. Son époux Hutton Morrow s'éloigne d'elle pour plonger dans le lit d'autres femmes. Tandis que Susan se désespère, elle reçoit un livre de son ex-mari, Edward Sheffield, qu'elle n'a pas revu depuis des années, intitulé : Nocturnal Animals, qu'il lui dédie.
Sa lecture effrénée la plonge dans une tourmente de sentiments très vifs qui réveillent ses souvenirs de jeunesse tandis qu'elle découvre l'histoire de Tony, sa femme Laura et leur fille India, agressés en pleine nuit par une bande de voyous sadiques. Lentement, inexorablement, Susan fait le lien entre le personnage fictif et l'homme qu'elle a aimé par le passé…

Synopsis

Propriétaire d'une galerie d'art à Los Angeles, Susan Morrow mène une vie professionnelle sans passion, tandis que son mari Hutton, homme d'affaires, la trompe avec d'autres femmes. Un jour, elle reçoit le manuscrit d'un roman écrit par son ex-mari Edward Sheffield accompagné d'une invitation lors d'une prochaine visite de ce dernier à Los Angeles. Susan commence la lecture du roman intitulé Animaux nocturnes (Nocturnal Animals dans la version originale), qu'il lui a dédié, en nommant le livre d'après un surnom qu'il lui avait donné. Le livre débute quand le personnage principal, Tony Hastings, part sur la route en voiture en vacances avec son épouse Laura et leur fille India, quand un soir ils sont contraints de s'arrêter sur une route de l'ouest du Texas par un groupe de trois voyous locaux, menés par Ray Marcus. Après un échange animé entre les Hastings et Marcus, ce dernier et ses amis emmènent de force Laura et India, face à l'impuissance de Tony, qui doit accompagner Lou, l'un des trois amis de Marcus, jusqu'au bout d'une route où il est abandonné. Lorsque Lou et Ray tentent de le retrouver, Tony parvient à se cacher et à se rendre dans une ferme des environs afin d'appeler la police. Choquée par le contenu sombre et l'émotion brute du roman, Susan se remémore sa rencontre avec Edward et de son mariage avec ce dernier, union à laquelle était opposée la mère de Susan, Anne Sutton, affirmant qu'Edward n'était pas digne des affections de Susan et que, à cause de sa vision romantique du monde, il manquait de volonté pour atteindre ses objectifs. Susan, découvrant l'infidélité d'Hutton, continue la lecture du roman.
