A lit­tle girl goes miss­ing in a work­ing class sub­urb of Bos­ton, and two lo­cal pri­vate de­tec­tives are hired to find her. De­spite hav­ing lit­tle ex­pe­ri­ence of such cases, they soon have leads in­volv­ing drug deal­ers, gangs and pae­dophiles, but the cli­max of the event turns out to be far more dis­turb­ing than ei­ther of them imag­ined. Like Mystic River be­fore it, this adap­ta­tion of a Dennis Le­hane novel is bril­liantly ob­served, di­rected and acted. Casey Af­fleck stars in big brother Ben’s di­rec­to­rial de­but, which also fea­tures Michelle Mon­aghan, Mor­gan Free­man, Ed Harris, John Ash­ton and Amy Madi­gan also star.

Pri­vate eye: Crime drama, star­ring Casey Af­fleck.
