Casey Affleck stars as a Boston detective in Ben Affleck's 'Gone Baby Gone.'
Moral ambiguity is the real star of Ben Affleck's helming debut, "Gone Baby Gone," an involving Boston-set tale of mixed motives, selflessness and perfidy in the wake of a 4-year-old girl's disappearance. Adapted from a novel by "Mystic River" author Dennis Lehane, somber pic radiates a feel for Beantown's working-class Dorchester neighborhood, in and around which two private investigators encounter a morass of motivations. Sharp thesping and conversation-starting themes suggest an honorable career, especially if reviews don't spill too many beans. Miramax release goes out Oct. 19 Stateside.
