Joel Edgerton‘s The Gift (7.31, STX) appears to be another variation on the Fatal Attraction formula — i.e., a troubled but more or less stable middle-class marriage is threatened by a relationship that the husband has (or more precisely had) with an unstable third party.   Steady and reliable-as-Old-Faithful Jason Bateman, ostrich-like Rebecca Hall and Edgerton as the bad guy. I’m sorry but Hall doesn’t look good with short hair — never get a pixie cut again and fire your hairdresser. Edgerton directed and wrote.
