Gone Baby Gone (2007)

Watch the trailer!

The other film in our pairing which features an actor in their first outing as director takes place in Dorchester, Boston in 2007. Directed by Boston-native Ben Affleck, the film stars his brother Casey as Patrick Kenzie, a local private investigator who is brought into a child abduction case by the abducted girl's Aunt and Uncle, Bea (Amy Madigen) and Lionel (Titus Welliver) McCready. Working with his partner, Angie Gennaro (Michelle Monaghan), they learn that the girl's mother, Helene (Amy Ryan) reportedly left the girl with a neighbor for only a few minutes, but when she returned, the child was gone. Police detectives Remy Bressant (Ed Harris) and Nick Pool (John Ashton) are assigned to the case, which is overseen by decorated Captain Jack Doyle (Morgan Freeman). Patrick and Angie pursue the child through a network of neighborhood contacts, and believe they've found her and negotiated her safe return when everything goes horribly wrong, and they believe the child has died. But this is only the beginning of a story with some incredible twists and turns before all is said and done. And the gents turn their attention to one of the greatest female actors of all time with their next pairing!
