Libby Day was only eight years old when her family was brutally murdered in their rural Kansas farmhouse. Almost thirty years later, she reluctantly agrees to revisit the crime and uncovers the wrenching truths that led up to that tragic night.
Libby Day is a lifeless woman who survived the massacre of her family in their farmhouse in the countryside of Kansas when she was eight. She's been living on donations and lectures ever since. Thirty years ago, the police believed that a satanic cult was responsible for the murder of her mother and two sisters, and her brother Ben was convicted with her testimony in court. Today, however, an acquaintance, Lyle Wirth, invites Libby to visit "The Kill Club", where amateurs investigate famous crimes, and she finds that they believe Ben is innocent. Libby needs money and, in return, accepts to revisit the slaughter of her family and comes up to the painful revelations and the ultimate truth.Written by

Charlize Theron is 5' 9 1/2" (177 centimeters) tall, but the character she plays is in the book, is just 4' 10" (148 centimeters) tall. See more »
When Young Ben is on the witness stand, the Kansas flag is on his right and the U.S. flag is on his left. By law, the U.S. flag should be on the flag's own right (the observer's left) and any other flag on the observer's right. See more »
I felt something loosen in me, that shouldn't have loosened. A stitch come undone.

I am one of the lucky guys to watch this movie in Paris earlier than the fans around the world. After the initial 30 minutes, the movie starts picking up its pace which was maintained till the end.The screenplay and direction were near perfect.
Needless to say, Charlize Theron has done an amazing job in acting. She carries the film on her shoulder from the beginning to the end. Next to her, Chloe has done a good job. Apart from these actors, the other people play a little role.
I can say that it's better than Gone Girl. Just go for it people. You won't get disappointed. My rating : 9/10.
