It’s too early for Oscar buzz but Hollywood megastar Ben Affleck went back to his roots as a screenwriter and might get another golden statuette. With younger brother Casey in the lead as a streetwise private investigator, the film adaptation of a crime drama features Academy Award winning faves Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris as jaded cops. The intense two hour movie follows the search for the toddler daughter of a local drug mule/barfly. The smart script is set in a brilliantly authentic lower middle class Boston. Despite critical accolades, it wasn’t box office gold but this one is a gem.
