Gone Baby Gone (2007), 114 minutes, D: Ben Affleck
During the opening of Ben Affleck's crime drama, private investigator Patrick Kenzie (Casey Affleck) explained that his job was to find people gone missing from the tough working-class neighborhood where he grew up, near Boston. He was hired by Bea McCready (Amy Madigan) to find the abducted 4-year-old daughter (Madeline O'Brien) of an ignorant cocaine-addicted mother (Amy Ryan). He was assisted by other police detectives, including veteran Remy Bressant (Ed Harris) and police captain Jack Doyle (Morgan Freeman), and joined by his girlfriend, Angie (Michelle Monaghan), as they entered a seamy world of gangs, drug dealers, murderous child-molesting pedophiles, and corrupt cops. As it turned out, Amanda's kidnapping (and her death) had been faked, and she was found living happily with Captain Doyle and his wife, who had suffered the kidnapping and murder of their own child years before. The film ended on a sad note, with Amanda returning to her irresponsible and negligent mother.
