Inspired by actual events and based on the best-selling novel by Richard Price, this explosive thriller stars Academy Award nominees Samuel L. Jackson (1994, Best Supporting Actor, Pulp Fiction) and Julianne Moore (2002, Best Actress, Far From Heaven) and Golden Globe winner Edie Falco ("The Sopranos"). When Brenda Martin (Moore) claims her car was stolen with her son in the backseat, the chilling accusation sparks an intense investigation led by Detective Lorenzo Council (Jackson). The frenzy to find her son escalates into an explosive nightmare of suspicion and accusation, and the search for the truth leads to riveting action, disturbing revelations, and a shocking ending.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The performances all around are lousy -- histrionic and turgid, a most lethal combination.
Rotten: Moviemakers who exploit the suffering and death of children to ratchet up the dramatic stakes belong in the innermost circle of hell, but Freedomland -- clumsy and overwrought as it is -- earns the right to its harrowing trajectory.
Rotten: Freedomland, the movie, doesn't flow at all. Joe Roth, who as a director makes an excellent producer, tries hard and you can see the effort throughout.
Rotten: Freedomland is the kind of dispiriting February botch that makes you wonder if mainstream Hollywood would be better off abandoning serious subjects to the world of specialized film.
