A man in his early 30s (Keane) struggles with the supposed loss of his daughter from the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York, while fighting serious battles with schizophrenia. We can never be sure if the loss is real or imaginary; or whether his overt interest in helping young girls is innocent and of a fatherly nature, or is of a darker, scarier motive.

Lodge Kerrigan's Keane is brilliant
26 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Keane is one of the finest films ever made. It is an intense "edge of your seat" movie about a difficult subject - mental illness, poverty, and the impact of these conditions on an innocent child. The director, Lodge Kerrigan and the leading actor, Damian Lewis (in an outstanding performance) manage to show us Keane's world with empathy and unflinching realism. It is the type of movie that stays in your mind for a long time. I hope the film receives the recognition deserved because it is a stand-out. Quality independent films should be rewarded and encouraged and are too-often overlooked. If you get the chance, see this movie!
