Two Boston area detectives investigate a little girl's kidnapping, which ultimately turns into a crisis both professionally and personally. Based on the Dennis Lehane novel.
When you think about cops you think of good cops and bad cops, but what if the line separating good from bad wasnít as clear as you thought it was? What if there were good cops and bad cops, and good cops who do bad things, and bad cops who do good things? Would you be confused? No, youíd just be watching the movie Gone Baby Gone, which takes you on a spin away from everything you expected.
Stories have always been told about what is right and what is wrong, and movies have been portraying those stories since the beginning of film, but Gone Baby Gone decides to take a different approach to the normal feel good movies of today. This is a movie that takes a stance against the ways in which we view situations in black or white. Gone Baby Gone shows us the gray that resides in every situation, even in crime and our legal system. What we believe is going on may, or may not be happening as it seems, and thatís the fun of seating in the theatre with this movie.
When a little girl goes missing from Dorchester, MA the police have little to go on after three days. The young girlís Aunt is distraught and turns to the help of private investigators to further the investigation. It is the private investigators, not the police, that can get the public talking about what really could have happened to the little girl and the life that she grew up in. It is the private investigators that learn about drugs, money, and murder, not the police who take pride on protecting their communities. This is just one of the ways that the movie takes a stance on the gray situations we face as
But in Gone Baby Gone nothing is how it seems. The audience goes through many suspects and winding twists and turns before they have any idea of what is going on, and just when they think they have it figured it, something else is thrown into the mix. This is a movie that constantly keeps you thinking and makes you follow the evidence right alone with the investigators themselves.
Youíll find no nice and tidy sets here, no censored language, and no feelings of dancing unicorns and butterflies. What youíll find is a movie that is different from all of the other happy endings and the movies that donít fit into Hollywood patterns. In Gone Baby Gone youíll be wondering what is really happening, who is on the good side, and who is on the bad? But overall the question that you will be left with is, ďAre there really good and bad sides anyway?Ē If you are looking for action, crime, drugs, morals, and the basics of a good cop, bad cop story then take a seat and grab some popcorn, because thatís just what youíll find.
