Prisoners 2013: Movie that will keep you guessing

Last month I encouraged everyone to watch “The Missing,” an 8-part television series about an Irish father and mother whose son goes missing while on Holiday in France. 

I never thought I would see another movie that would be as equally good until I watched Prisoners last night.  Released in 2013, this movie is about Pennsylvania parents who visit the neighbors house for Thanksgiving dinner and both daughters disappear together sometime during the late afternoon, and their only lead is an old motor home that had been parked on their street.

The twists and turns of this movie keeps you guessing.  At first you are sure one character is guilty party, but then things take a turn and then you are not sure anymore.  Jake Gyllenhaal (watch him in Nightcrawler for acting that deserves an Oscar) plays the detective who is searching for the girls and Hugh Jackman plays the father of 6-year-old Anna.  We follow them both with a parallel story line that gives us perspective from both sides.

I don’t want to tell you much more because I don’t want to spoil it.  IMDB gives it 4 out of 5 starts and Rotten Tomatoes, 4 out of 5 stars, and I give it 5 stars. Please note the movie is 2 1/2 hours long and you will not be bored for one minute while you take this roller coaster ride to the perfect ending.
