    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.

    Gone Baby Gone

    Bottom Line: Mordant, melancholic but impressive debut for director Affleck

    By Kirk Honeycutt

    Casey Affleck plays a privaste investigator
    aiding in the search for a missing child.

    Ben Affleck seemed like a promising young actor when he starred in "Chasing Amy" a decade ago. A year later, he and Matt Damon won an Oscar for their screenplay for "Good Will Hunting." But since then, Affleck has been better known for his offscreen romances than for his screen performances, which have been pretty universally derided.

    So a lot of people will be surprised by his directorial debut, "Gone Baby Gone," though if you caught the glint of intelligence he showed in such movies as "Going All the Way" and "Boiler Room," his achievement here might seem less startling.

    Affleck, who also wrote the screenplay with Aaron Stockard, was smart to begin with a novel by Dennis Lehane ("Mystic River"). Like that story, which was made into an award-winning movie by Clint Eastwood, this one takes place in a working-class neighborhood of Boston and centers on the disappearance of a child. Because this film is as uncompromising as "Mystic River," and since the cast is not quite as star-studded, it faces an uphill battle at the boxoffice. But it's going to be remembered as one of the best crime movies of this decade.
