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. An ut­terly ab­sorb­ing crime drama in the same league as Clint East­wood’s

Mystic River. Jack­man de­liv­ers a clear ca­reer- best per­for­mance, while co- star Jake Gyl­len­haal also makes a telling con­tri­bu­tion.
