Gone Baby Gone
Source: Catholic News Service
Thought-provoking mystery about a private investigator (a superlative Casey Affleck) and his girlfriend-partner (Michelle Monaghan) hired to investigate the disappearance of the 4-year-old daughter of a drug addict (Amy Ryan) in the Boston area, with the reluctant cooperation of the police (Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris). Ben Affleck makes an auspicious directorial debut in this adaptation of Dennis Lehane's novel, and though the seedy environment, pervasive expletives and sporadic but graphic violence will not be to everyone's taste, mature viewers will find those elements and some morally troublesome actions handled with gravity and intelligence. Pervasive rough language, profanity, violence with blood, corpses, an impulsive vigilante-style killing, drug use, implied nonmarital relationships, and child abuse references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
