About the Movie
A plucky kid puts herself in peril when she matches wits with three scheming criminals in Kid Witness, a suspenseful Manhattan mystery and family comedy caper from writer, director and producer Kevin Kaufman. Left in the care of her teenage brother Miles while their mom is out of town, 10-year-old Olivia Haden takes her dog Charlie for a late-night walk and witnesses a brazen kidnapping on the deserted streets of New York City. But when she tells Miles what she has seen, he dismisses her, and when she reports it to the NYPD, only a sympathetic detective named Dottie will even listen. Without solid evidence, there’s nothing Dottie can do, so the intrepid tween sets out to solve the crime herself. Facing down a trio of bumbling crooks, a mysterious fixer toting an oversized bunny, and a rapidly ticking clock, Olivia crisscrosses lower Manhattan in an exciting family-oriented thriller sure to delight kids of all ages, as well as their parents.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A caper movie runs on calibrated chaos. Too much randomness makes the gears grind; too little and it feels overdetermined. Ace the Case has both problems.
Rotten: Too violent and dark for kids but too juvenile and bland for grown-ups.
I loved this film.. it reminded me of a good old fashioned yet updated caper... and it all takes place in New York City... Ripley is a super star... and its always good to watch Susan Sarandon.
Great family film
Young star Ripley Sobo and Susan Sarandon make a great pair! A fun family film. Keep an eye out for Ripley in the next few years - she's bound to be a big star!
A Lively Romp in the (concrete) Jungle
I saw a screening of this movie with my Husband and two girls. The girls liked it a lot and My Husband and I really enjoyed the New York City setting. Sarandon is wonderful as usual.
