In this psychological thriller from Academy Award Nominated director Atom Egoyan, Matthew (Ryan Reynolds) steps briefly into a diner and comes out to find that his young daughter Cassandra has vanished without a trace from the back of his truck. Her unsolved abduction destroys Matthew's once-happy relationship with his wife, Tina (Mireille Enos), who, haunted by mementos of Cassandra that appear mysteriously at her work, suspects her husband of foul play. Years later, when detectives Nicole (Rosario Dawson) and Jeffrey (Scott Speedman) discover recent images of Cassandra online, Matthew risks everything to ensure his daughter's safe return—and to save himself and Tina from the limbo of unrelenting despair. Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast, and Bruce Greenwood co-star.

    The acting is awful, the characters are goofy, it's like a B movie. Almost hilarious!

    The only thing this movie has going for it is Ryan Reynolds.

    Awesome! This movie tells a story from the perspective of all the victims of a missing child. The parents, the child, the police. Tied up with a happy ending. Which is rarely the case. I wish they had gone a little farther and told more of how finding a missing child, a kidnapped officer/victim, impacted their lives after finding the child when so many are never found. 35 years I’ve spent in the criminal justice system and I have never heard of this type of predator and their sycophant patrons. As a parent I would not have survived this. I Hope you do more movies along these lines. The biggest question I believe all of us ask is “Why” these predators and their followers do this? The the same question is asked of serial killers. I’ve studied this my entire adult career. I’ve never found an answer! Not yet. Perhaps their is no answer, only theories. Which makes this topic so interesting, terrifying and keeps the majority of the world tuned in. It is not because we are fans of this topic, it is because we are desperate for answers and ways to keep our children safe. Please do more of this type of movie. Linda K. McGarity Philanthropist Fundraiser Mother Daughter Sister Aunt Niece Cousin A person of interest in this topic Because I have seen these crimes up close The evidence The predator Their victims The victims loved ones The effect these cases have on the detectives, the prosecutors, officers, the court, the jurors and the public. Not much is known about the sycophant fans who, in my opinion, are just as guilty for keeping the fires of interest in these areas. A good example of this theory to ponder is in a movie, the title escapes me but the stars are Colyn (?) Hanks and , so sorry, the former wife of actor Josh or James Brolyn! Possibly misspelled. Thank you

    Had to skim through it, the movie is seriously that bad. They give the ending away in the first few minutes (well, if you have half a brain it isn't hard) and you have zero empathy with any characters. What's with the creepy cops in a daycare center? What's with any of it? In the end I didn't care I was just glad I only paid 99c to rent it - still kinda feel ripped off.

    I found this movie to be entertaining. Timeline was tricky to follow but eventually it begins to reveal an interesting story. In the beginning the law enforcement feels damaged by the end everyone is.
