ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Deemed by Time Out as "a modern American masterpiece," Academy Award nominated Director David Fincher (SE7EN, GONE GIRL) delivers a gut-wrenching, nuanced thriller set on the backdrop of 1960s & 70s San Francisco, in which a cartoonist becomes an amateur detective obsessed with tracking down the Zodiac Killer, an unidentified individual who terrorizes Northern California with a killing spree. Oscar nominees Jake Gyllenhaal (NIGHTCRAWLER, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN), Robert Downey Jr. (SHERLOCK HOLMES, IRON MAN) and Mark Ruffalo (SPOTLIGHT, THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT) star in this film that " offers the puzzle-solving addictiveness of a detective story, the shivers of a thriller and the allure of a character study, all presented with a dash of newspaper drama" (Seattle Times).
