About the Movie
When a 17-year old girl goes missing, family man and distinguished college professor, Evan Birch’s (Guy Pearce) life is turned upside down as circumstantial evidence convinces gruff police Detective Malloy (Pierce Brosnan) that Birch is a prime suspect. As Malloy begins to peel back the layers of Birch’s past indiscretions with female students, and his wife (Minnie Driver) begins to question his alibi, Birch’s life starts to unravel, and suddenly the questions that he’s faced with aren’t merely academic – they’re a matter of life and death.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Can a movie devoid of thrills be called a thriller?
Rotten: Like so many "tricky" noir thrillers that are contrived B-movies at heart, it jerks our expectations around and turns toying with the audience into a kind of formalist stunt.
Fresh: Of the many interchangeable, name-lead thrillers and action pictures concurrently premiering these days in theatres and on VOD, this one's definitely a cut above.
Rotten: Fine performances can't save this formulaic suspenser.
Was decent, but wanted to connect to the characters in a bit more depth.
Good cast and story; low-key direction slows the pace
Good cast, shallow story, poor story line connection.
