GONE BABY GONE (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Gone Baby Gone—
gritty, heart-rending thriller—examines events leading to the abduction of a female preschooler from her Boston home. This is Casey Afflect at his best. No fault found in this film as supported by Ed Harris and Morgan Freeman. While tough, realistic scenes put this film in the category of adult viewing, the film ends, oddly enough, as a thought-provoking informative piece about best decisions for young children in compromised households.

Helen McCready (Amy Ryan) makes a televised plea for the return of her daughter. During the investigation, Helen’s lifestyle reveals a less than desirable home for the child. Tough investigation provides no real leads to the child's location.
