All-star cast featuring Sigourney Weaver, Kate Bosworth and Keri Russell, and Alessandro Nivola. Still traumatized by the disappearance of her three-year-old daughter 15 years ago, Julia Sandburg's old psychic wounds painfully resurface when she meets Louise; a troubled young woman with a checkered past.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing movie December 9, 2009
Format:DVD
I've been waiting to see this movie, but I was disappointed. Signourney Weaver's performance seemed flat and colorless, the time lapse left too many unanswered questions, and the ending was left hanging.

Julia Sandburg and her husband Doug are the parents of two children, Chris and his younger sister Maggie. Julia is a nightclub singer whose career seems about to take off when tragedy strikes. Three year old Maggie vanishes on an outing to the park. She disappears from the playground in just seconds, when Julia's back is turned. Julia searches the almost-deserted park, screaming Maggie's name, but there is only silence.

The story then skips 16 years into the future. The Sandburg family has changed dramatically. Julia, now divorced from Doug, is lonely and isolated when she meets Louise, a hard-living girl who is the age Maggie would now be. Julia and Louise develop a relationship similar to mother and daughter. Then Julia begins to believe that Louise might be her long-lost child. I won't add any spoilers, but be prepared for many unanswered questions. I gave the movie a 3-star rating because it was engrossing, if unsatisfactory at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid performance piece for Weaver... November 29, 2009
Format:DVD
As par for Weinstein they released a bare bones disc with no advertising so customers have been surprised in finding this little gem on the shelf without much fanfare. Sigourney has another solid performance cataloged here and by the time the credits roll she was really the only reason to watch this.

The story follows a perfect-style life musician-mom with the stereotypical good family in middle class NYC. After the tragic disappearance of her young daughter at a park they are visiting, we get subjected to an emotional 95 minutes of a mother's suffering and her wallowing in the inability to get past the self blame. Some standard supporting showings appear from Kate Bosworth and Keri Russell, and even some quick bites from Elias Koteas as a post-loss intimacy interest (have seen him in six films this last year).

The film quality is good, as is the 5.1 sound and it runs at a long and sometimes awkward 110 minutes. There are many moments where you feel yourself yelling at Sigourney's character as she performs the painful rituals of child-stalking, mistrusting bad people and shunning the ones who love her. But she showed her usual excellent prose and believability in long-term suffering (as the film spans 16 years). The pace is slow at times and some of the conversations can feel irrelevant, but the slight detraction of wanderings are outweighed by a meaningful film about a mother's loss.

No supplements, so four for the film and quality. English and Spanish subs, English language only, Region 1.

Format:DVD
A little girl disappears from a park, her parents eventually divorce, her brother grows up and is about to get married, and then a young woman appears in the mother's life. The young woman may or may not be the adult version of the little girl. We never know for sure. However, there is plenty of drama to keep you intrigued and sympathetic towards the still-grieving mother, who wants a daughter figure in her life any way she can find one.
