The multiple-award-winning and critically acclaimed thriller marks the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter and actor Ben Affleck and stars Academy Award®-nominees Casey Affleck and Amy Ryan alongside Michelle Monaghan, Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris.
Winner of awards from the major US film critics’ organizations, including those in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington and San Francisco, the Screen Actors Guild, the Broadcast Film Critics and the National Board of Review, as well as an Academy Award® nomination for supporting actress Amy Ryan, GONE BABY GONE has enjoyed notable recent box-office success in the United States.
Academy Award®-winner Ben Affleck’s (GOOD WILL HUNTING) directorial debut GONE BABY GONE is adapted by Affleck and Aaron Stockard from the best-selling novel of the same name by Dennis Lehane, author of the award-winning crime mystery Mystic River. Starring Academy Award® nominee Casey Affleck (THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD) alongside Academy Award® nominee Amy Ryan (BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOUR DEAD) Michelle Monaghan (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III), Academy Award® nominee Ed Harris (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE) and Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman (MILLION DOLLAR BABY), this sinuously provocative, edge-of-your-seat thriller, taken from Lehane’s popular series featuring private investigators Patrick Kenzie (Casey Affleck) and Angie Genarro (Michelle Monaghan), follows a gripping and disturbing criminal investigation, which leads the detectives into the dark side of Boston, where the gritty working-class streets are lined with the wreckage of broken families and dreams. The two warily take on a new and deeply sensitive case, finding themselves on a trail that winds into the dark heart of the city and the pungent misery of abuse, addiction and neglect.
As a Boston native and acknowledged storyteller with an actor’s sensibility, Ben Affleck (winner of the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival in 2006 for Hollywoodland) is ideally suited to bringing this powerful thriller to the screen. An admirer of Lehane’s writing, he says: “I loved the complex and polarizing characters and, at the same time, I found it constantly surprising and compelling”.
