Brock Connors
Detective Scieziesciez
Mrs. Hillman


Kat Connors is 17 years old when her seemingly perfect homemaker mother, Eve, disappears in 1988. Having lived for so long in an emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat of a father, Brock, for the loss. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve's disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother's departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it... Written by Anonymous

a great movie that is hurt a little by the amazingness of Gone Girl being released the week before
19 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I was 17 when my mother disappeared. Just as I was becoming nothing but my body, she stepped out of hers and left it behind." Kat (Woodley) is about to graduate high school and has great friends, a loving father and a mother (Green) who is very unstable and bitter. One day her mother goes missing and no one knows what happened. Little by little Kat and her father begin to move on. During Kat's return home during a college break the mystery comes up again but this time Kat wants to know what really happened. This is a great movie and I highly recommend this. There are enough aspects to this that keep you guessing and interested the entire time. The only bad thing I can say about this is that it was released a few weeks too late. Had this come out before I saw Gone Girl I think I would have liked it more. The idea is fairly similar but I though Gone Girl was better. That movie had me guessing the entire time and I was wrong every time. I love movies like that. This one had me guessing too but I was able to stay ahead of it just enough to where I wasn't as surprised like I was with Gone Girl. That said though I do highly recommend this movie and is one to check out for sure. Overall, a great movie that is hurt a little by the amazingness of Gone Girl being released the week before. I give this an A-.
