Af­ter the mys­te­ri­ous ab­duc­tion of two chil­dren, po­lice in a small US town are forced to let the only sus­pect walk. An an­guished par­ent (Hugh Jack­man, in a clear ca­reer-best per­for­mance) 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. Co-star Jake Gyl­len­haal makes a con­tri­bu­tion that is just as telling.
