Gone Baby Gone

When Meara suggested that I should watch this film, I was leery thanks to it being directed by one Mr. Affleck. But after this film I am convinced that he should spend more time behind the lens instead of in front of it.

A young girl goes missing in the tough Dorchester neighborhood of Boston and a couple of private detectives are asked to assist with the case. Patrick (Casey Affleck) and Angie (Michelle Monaghan), colleagues and lovers, soon find themselves reluctantly immersed in what initially looks like a simple abduction. As they meander through the investigation, they find themselves conflicted personally and professionally and nothing is as it seems...
