What would you do if your daughter was missing?
9 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very well done drama thriller, that is based on a true story, which makes it all the more powerful.

This was a disturbing one to watch, let me tell you. It's every parent's worse nightmare come true. When Rachel Barber (Bell) doesn't come home on the tram when she's supposed to, her parents (Pearce, Otto) fear the worst. As well they should. They try to get the police involved but it seems that they have bigger fish to fry and could care less about Rachel's disappearance. They want to put up flyers, the police tell them that they better file a permit or they'll be charged a fine. They do some sleuthing themselves and give the information to the police... but still... they do nothing.

The only people that are willing to help are other family members in the household and neighbors, one of them being Caroline Reid (Bradley), who used to babysit the Barber children. Mr. & Mrs. Barber find out a lot about their little "perfect angel" as they dig deeper and deeper into what could have happened to her. It seems that she was having a sexual relationship with her new boyfriend, Manni (Chittenden) and he lied about knowing of her whereabouts.

It just gets more and more intense from there. Fine acting jobs all around (not a bad egg among them) is what keeps you glued to the screen and wanting to get to the bottom of this mystery. Ruth Bradley as the babysitter gives a very raw, emotional and bold performance -- so intense that you just cannot look away. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: B
