"The picture is very simply constructed, using a minimum of tricks as it works its way toward its inevitable conclusion....As vigilante thrillers go, GONE is actually kind of subtle..."

"[A] fundamentally sound thriller with a gloomy, overcast sense of atmosphere, Brazilian director Heitor Dhalia making good use of the sodden, fatigued working-class precincts of Portland..."
A young woman (Amanda Seyfried) prepares to confront the assailant who previously abducted her, and who has now sought vengeance by kidnapping her sister in this thriller from director Heitor Dhalia. Jill (Seyfried) lives a quiet life, yet one marked by a severe anxiety that the man who once threw her in a ditch to die was going to come back and finish the job. When her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) goes missing, Jill heads to the police, but no one will listen to her, save for Detective Hood (Wes Bentley), who might or might not have his own reasons for lending a hand. As time runs out, Jill becomes more frantic and takes to desperate measures, putting the police on her trail as she tries to put an end to her nightmare once and for all. Jennifer Carpenter, Joel David Moore, and Michael Pare co-star in the Summit Entertainment release.
