The thing that sticks with you the most in Gone Baby Gone isn’t just how good the movie is, but how the movie ends. In a matter of five minutes and one scene you can tell how the the main character’s life will turn out in regards to the character he’s left with. The main character I speak of is Private Detective Patrick Kenzie played with brooding naivety one second and a calm anger with a peppering of necessary violence the next by the wonder boy of the year Casey Affleck. Casey plays the last moments of the scene as someone who realizes that while every one else might have been correct, he was still right, and he will have to give the rest of his life to make it work. I know that’s incredibly vague, but hopefully it will spark enough interest in the few readers that read this to want to go see the film. The final shot in itself is so quietly moving it’s worth the 11 to 14 dollars admission. (more…)
