Critics are calling Ben Affleck's directorial debut "mesmerizing" (Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE). When two young private detectives (Casey Affleck, GOOD WILL HUNTING, and Michelle Monaghan, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III) are hired to take a closer look into the mysterious disappearance of a little girl, they soon unravel a multitude of twists and turns where nothing is what it seems. Ultimately they must risk everything -- their relationship, their sanity, and even their lives -- in the search to find her. Casey Affleck and Morgan Freeman are electrifying, and Amy Ryan (CAPOTE) delivers "a vibrant, knockout performance" (Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES) in this edge-of-your-seat crime drama. GONE BABY GONE "will have you talking long after it's over" (Christy Lemire, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS).
