Film Still Courtesy of Netflix

Driving home after a tense holiday weekend with his in-laws, Ray Monroe (Sam Worthington), a well-meaning but overwhelmed family man, pulls into a rest area with his wife Joanne (Lily Rabe) and daughter Peri (Lucy Capri). The trip takes a turn for the worse when Peri is hurt in an accident and the family rushes to a nearby emergency room run by a staff with dubious intentions. After being sent away for further testing Peri and Joanne vanish and all records of their visit disappear. Ray’s concern turns into a desperate race to find his family and discover the truth of what happened to them.

Sam Worthington does a stand up job, playing the part of the loving husband and father searching for his wife and child. This movie is not for the faint of heart. Be prepared to go on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. You will find yourself confused, disgusted, and shocked at every turn. Maybe you will figure out the truth before the filmmaker’s reveal, maybe you won’t. Afterall how many disappearance movies do we see throughout the year? This is no Liam Neeson’s Taken as his missing family is threatened, imagine a ride more akin to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Shutter Island. You’ll finish the film questioning everything you know. The film is well directed, and Sam Worthington truly does a great job showcasing another side of his acting chops. We didn’t really think the casting for his daughter looked like him, but maybe. All the supporting characters who play the hospital doctors and staff alongside the police do a wonderful job dirving the narrative, and leave you wondering who is lying. Whose side will you be on? Give the movie a viewing on Netflix, Fractured comes out October 11th, let us know your thoughts.
