Af­ter the mys­te­ri­ous ab­duc­tion of two chil­dren, po­lice in a small Amer­i­can town are forced to let their only sus­pect walk. An an­guished par­ent ( Hugh Jackman) takes mat­ters into his own hands and con­ducts a pri­vate in­ter­ro­ga­tion of the sus­pect. A com­plex, un­set­tling and ut­terly ab­sorb­ing crime drama in the same league as Clint East­wood’s 2003 master­piece Mys­tic River. Jackman de­liv­ers a clear ca­reer- best per­for­mance. Co- star Jake Gyl­len­haal makes just as telling a con­tri­bu­tion.
