As a parent, the whole concept of your child going missing is hard enough to deal with, but when no-one else claims to have seen the child, and thoughts go from "The poor dear..." to "Oh heck, another nutter..." I can only imagine the trauma this would cause.
The movie itself was quite well done, and I enjoyed the bonus extras, and despite it provoking parental fears, the movie itself progressed along really well, with the only 'quiet time' right at the start of the movie.
Overall, not one of my all-time favourite Jody Foster movies, but certainly one of the most compelling thrillers I have seen in a long while. When I eventually end up taking my son for a flight, I am going to be a lot more aware of keeping a very close eye on him, and making sure the digital camera has shots of us together in the plan, and our boarding passes.
Random listing from 'Movies'...
The Beguiled is an atmospheric thriller that unfolds at a secluded girls boarding school in Civil War-era Virginia. When a wounded Union soldier, Corporal McBurney (Colin Farrell), is found near the school, he's taken in by its headmistress, Miss Martha (Nicole Kidman). As the young woman provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries when McBurney seduces several of the girls. Taboos are broken and events take an unexpected turn in this gripping and haunting thriller also starring Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning.
