This movie wound up getting pretty twisted – much more than I was expecting. Ben Affleck plays a man who comes home on his anniversary and finds his wife is missing. The longer the story goes on, the more he starts being looked at as a suspect in her disappearance, and possible murder! How do you prove you didn’t do something? Especially when the facts and clues all start pointing toward you, no matter what you say or do. How honest is he being? Before long, it becomes a huge media circus that gets out of control and makes finding the truth even harder. This film made me think about how much we really don’t know about people – only what they “want” us to know. Also, what lengths people will go to just to protect themselves, no matter how much it hurts others. There are a lot of different angles to look at this story, and I can’t seem to stop thinking about all of them!
