“He’s not a person anymore. No, he stopped being a person when he took our daughters.”
What’s it about?
Keller and Franklin are happily spending thanksgiving together with their families when both of their daughters go missing. Even though they lack a very particular set of skills, they decide to take matters into their own hands.
Who’s in it?
Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and that chick from How to Get Away With Murder.
Why should I watch it?
+ One of Hugh Jackman’s best performance
+ His character goes to a very very very dark place
+ Did I mention how dark this place is?
+ Cat and mouse chase between Jackman and Gyllenhaal
+ Paul Dano as a soft spoken but very off key guy
+ Some incredibly disturbing scenes
+ A-maze-ing story (wink wink)
+ Lots of twist and turns that keeps you guessing
+ Has a bit of a True Detective vibe to it
+ Ending that suits the movie
Why shouldn’t I watch it?
– Felt like all Keller’s wife did was sleep, cry and blame her husband
– If you have a fear of snakes
– Will make you overprotective if you’re a parent
Questions how far you are willing to go to get your family back. I can’t even imagine what it would be like if your child goes missing but I can see how the lines could be blurred and how easily you could go to places you may not come back from. It’s truly a real life horror story.
