5 Everyone Wants The Truth... Until They Find It.DrMylesOBoogie | 06/01/2009 | See all DrMylesOBoogie's reviews (56)This story of two detectives investigating the kidnapping of a little girl is one of the most powerful films I've seen in my life. Certainly my favourite of it's genre. The film is also famously Ben Affleck's directorial debut and I'll say that he absolutely knocked this out of the park. It was Affleck that wrote the screenplay which is an adaptation from Dennis Lahne's novels. The screenplay is wonderful and I'd say that Affleck was very unlucky to not recieve an oscar nomination in this catagory.Casey Affleck and Michelle Monaghan lead a very solid cast. They are in good company though with Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris both bringing their A game to the film.The plot has many twists and turns before we find the truth behind the abduction of the little girl. Without giving away the ending I will say that the actions taken by the moral choices the characters are forced to deal with in this film will split audiences and will probably cause heated arguements between those that watch it. This sadly is something of a rarity in film these days. Ben Affleck has put together a truly remarkable film that is well worth a purchase.
