Starring: Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan
Young Affleck is making some very smart decisions. Here, following the direction of older brother Ben, Casey plays Patrick, a private detective that’s hired to find a missing little girl, Amanda, which coincidentally looks a lot like Maddie McCain (the girl who went missing in Portugal in May). The resemblance is really eery, but once you get past that the movie is really suspenseful, thought provoking and very entertaining. Casey Affleck is proving time and again that he’s the next greatest actor of our generation. Let’s hope he keeps making smart movie decisions.
