Directed by Clint Eastwood. With Angelina Jolie, Gattlin Griffith, Michelle Martin.

Set in the early thirties and in the midst of police corruption in Los Angeles the story is about a mother's search for her 9 year old son who has gone missing.

Pretty much sticking to the facts of the case (some of it was even more bizarre than presented) we are kept in suspense even though we know what's going to happen.

Eastwood's pick of Angelina Jolie as the mother was, in my humble opinion, an unexpectedly good one. Thanks to the use of lots of makeup her tattoos did not show up in the scenes where they could.

While some critics did not like this film I found myself deeply drawn into a few scenes including one where I found myself urging the good cop to grab the shovel from the kid. I'll not say more as I don't want to ruin it for those of you who will take this opportunity to escape from today's reality.
