‘Nocturnal Animals’ Editor Joan Sobel on the Challenge and Creativity of Weaving Together Three Stories

"That was the fun, the creativity, taking these three stories and weaving them together."

Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals weaves together three stories as it depicts a gallery owner (Amy Adams) reading a thriller written by her ex-husband, with the events of the fictional thriller weaving into the narrative as well.

“Tom wrote a great script. He masterfully wove those three stories into the script,” editor Joan Sobel tells Below the Line. “But the script is one thing. The movie becomes something else. It becomes bigger. That was the fun, the creativity, taking these three stories and weaving them together, finding places where you enter or leave – the things that correlate, the transition moments. Whether it’s going to be something visual or a sound. Something emotional that takes you back and forth between these three stories, because all three of them are related.”
