Seriously though, what more could you want? Does this flick look good to U??
Safely taking her meds and working at a local diner, Jill is putting her life back together. One morning she comes home from work and discovers her sister Gone from the house. Through Seyfried’s powerful eyes, we see that something is extremely not right. In fact, the scene is awfully familiar to the one her character describes having experienced. Upon involving the police, she realizes how alone she is in the search for her sister.
It’s a race-against-the-clock thriller. Jill knows how long the kidnapper keeps a subject alive before taking their life, and as such, the “time’s up moment” is constantly hanging over the film like a black cloud.
Gone is Seyfried’s movie. The actress has truly come into her own. The promise seen in Mean Girls and Mamma Mia has come to full fruition. Heck, we even thought the actress was the best thing about In Time! And in Gone, she doles out jusenough of an emotional roller coaster ride that it keeps the audience guessing as to how this story will play out.Movie Fanatic also salutes the production as they made Portland, Oregon and its vast natural resources a character in the film. When producers could have easily filmed it in Vancouver and saved some coin, for authenticity and the continued success of the U.S. film market, Gone's goodness also lies in its locale. It pays off within the story. As Seyfried is racing through the dense forest convinced she is moments away from finding her sister, by that point in the story, we know that our journey has been in the American Pacific Northwest, a site with a storied history of people vanishing… and sometimes turning up.
At times, the film can come across as a stretch. Most thrillers can suffer under the weight of their premise. With Seyfried in control of her emotional power and demons as Jill, getting Gone with the actress is a solid two hours spent
Convinced that a serial killer, who kidnapped her years before, is behind her sister Molly's disappearance, she races against the clock (12 hours, to be more exact) to prove to the police that she is right. "Why would he come back for you?," an investigator asks. "I'm the only one who got away because I know his secret!," Jill says exasperated.
Is Jill psychologically damaged? Is it all in her head? "What if Jill isn't crazy? What if this guy really does have Molly?"
The Heitor Dhalia-directed film, slated for a Feb. 24 release, co-stars Wes Bentley, Jennifer Carpenter, Sebastian Stan, Emily Wickersham, Erin Carufel, Daniel Sunjata and Socratis Otto.
