In the opening scenes a distraught father feverishly retraces the chain of events that led to his 6-year-old daughter's abduction in New York's Port Authority Bus Terminal months earlier. Questions, doubts and anxieties pile upon him to the point where we wonder about his sanity and the very existence of the child. His encounter with Lynn and her daughter Kira (Abigail Breslin of Little Miss Sunshine) impacts on the solace he has been seeking in the district's seedy bars. Tense and harrowing, but compassionate and redemptive too, the film is notable for the brilliant Lewis's haunting, resonant performance.
“British actor Damian Lewis gives the performance of his career in this involving, compassionate picture.”
“Damian Lewis's Keane is like a pared-down version of Robert De Niro's Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, and is not diminished by the comparison.”
