Here's the deal: Hugh Jackman gives a powerhouse performance as Keller Dover, a Pennsylvania contractor, survivalist and recovering alcoholic whose six-year-old daughter goes missing on Thanksgiving Day. He's matched by Jake Gyllenhaal, who is exceptional, haunted and haunting, as Loki, the obsessive cop who isn't acting fast enough for Keller. Loki lacks the hard evidence to arrest Alex (Paul Dano), a mentally challenged suspect who's been hanging around the neighborhood in a camper. Pushed to the limit, Keller snatches Alex from the home of his aunt (a quietly devastating Melissa Leo), holding him prisoner for days in an abandoned building and torturing him for info in ways that would shame any interrogator, CIA or Al Qaeda.
