Director: Denis Villeneuve
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello
It’s every father’s worst nightmare: hardworking carpenter Keller Dover’s six-year-old daughter and her best friend are kidnapped during Thanksgiving celebrations.
Keller, played by Hugh Jackman (THE WOLVERINE), finds himself head to head with the brashly confident detective Loki (Gyllenhaal, END OF WATCH), who nevertheless fails to find the missing girls. But after young Ralph Dover recalls seeing them playing around a beat-up motorhome, Keller takes the investigation into his own hands, triggering explosive results – and inevitable questions about vigilantism masquerading as justice.
Paul Dano (LOOPER) plays the listless chief suspect, and Maria Bello, Terrence Howard and Viola Davis provide terrific support as the other desperate parents, while director Villeneuve again demonstrates the talent for multilateral suspense that won him his INCENDIES Oscar nomination.
