Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck), a former New York writer, and his beautiful wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) portray a happy marriage to the residents of Carthage, Missouri. Amy disappears on the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary, and Nick is naturally suspected. As a result of police scrutiny and media attention, Nick and Amy’s public persona as a contented married couple crumbles, raising intriguing concerns about their identities. Amy carefully organised her abduction after discovering Nick’s infidelity so that it would appear as though Nick had murdered her. After killing an old boyfriend she had seduced to make it appear as if he had abducted her, she chooses to return home to Nick and has herself artificially inseminated with her husband to make him stay with her.
16) Arrival Movie (2016)
When massive spacecraft land at 12 different sites across the planet, linguistics professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) heads up an elite team of detectives to figure out what’s going on. When a dozen extraterrestrial ships land on Earth, the military enlists her help in figuring out why they came. Banks and her team are in a race against time to figure out how to talk to the aliens before the world erupts into war. In her pursuit of answers, she makes a risky choice that might endanger not just her but the whole human race.
This is not a classic movie in which events occur in sequential order. Now what we have here is a palindromic film. Dr Banks’ deciphering of the heptapods’ language reveals that the creatures have a non-linear method of conveying information; they know the conclusion as they compose the first words of a story. In the context of the movie, this means that Dr Banks becomes aware that she has a kid that will not live past childhood. Despite the fact that her child hasn’t even been born yet, she already knows the tragic conclusion. The baby’s name, Hannah, is a palindrome.

A musician in his family has been forbidden for centuries, but young Miguel is determined to follow in the footsteps of his hero, Ernesto de la Cruz. Miguel and his new companion Héctor, a delightful trickster, set off on a fantastic adventure to discover the truth about his family’s past.
Miguel, when mixing with the deceased, realises that Héctor is just a miserable sap who is desperately seeking to reestablish contact with his loved ones. It turns out, however, that Héctor was murdered by Ernesto and that Héctor was actually Miguel’s great-great-grandfather and Coco’s father.
18) Second Act Movie (2018)
Maya Vargas, an assistant manager at Value Shop, turns 43 on Tuesday and wants just one thing: a promotion. In spite of the fact that her resume doesn’t exactly scream “high management,” her record more than makes up for it. As a forward-thinking businesswoman, Vargas puts her client’s needs first and consistently exceeds their expectations. After being passed over for a position in favour of a candidate with a college degree, Maya decides to show Madison Avenue that street smarts are just as vital as book smarts and that it’s never too late for a second act. She doesn’t just land her ideal job. She also reunites with her long-lost daughter, who turns out to be a colleague.

And he does so when his devoted carer, Marta, inadvertently administers a fatal amount of morphine to him. In an effort to save her further harm, he decides to take matters into his own hands and slashes his own neck. A member of Harlan’s own family was, in fact, plotting Harlan’s murder.
