Storyline

Intertwining stories exploring the bad in the best of us and the good in the worst of us. Against the backdrop of a child abduction case we follow five days in the life of the single parent detective assigned to the case, her best friend whose determination to get pregnant keeps her from confronting her husband's infidelity, a school teacher and his obsession with the missing child that pushes him to the edge of vigilantism, a beat cop grieving over the violent death of his wife, a recovering addict and her wheel chair bound brother preparing for the LA marathon, and a self-loathing African American TV writer's search for love.

A Grossly underrated movie--it is really good!
8 March 2013 | by (Reynolds City Montana) – See all my reviews

I usually do not like multiple character study movies. Most movies without a focal character lose my interest quickly. But this one is astonishingly interesting. I do wish they had done more with Julie Benz as a cop. Benz doesn't really seem to have much to work with here and her character is way underwritten. Barbara Hershey is astonishing as an wife who states her feeling about her situation flawlessly. Elizabeth Mitchell is extremely good too. Dane Cook is very believable--and I have to say I was very surprised when the in the movie his profession was revealed. And it was clear he was good at his profession. And he was a very messed-up individual. So Cook really cooks here. Kali Hawk's character is amusing and also well done. So for the characters alone--which means good writing, this is an excellent movie.
