Damian Lewis, Amy Ryan
Muttering to himself and cursing at strangers, a disheveled man paces in Manhattan's main bus station. He's a type all too familiar to urban dwellers: the scary crazy guy. In a devastating film exploring human frailty, we come to understand, partially, just who this man is and what demons drive him.
Keane (Lewis) is mentally unbalanced. That's clear. What's not is whether his young" daughter really vanished one day at this same bus station while in his care. He certainly believes it happened and has spiraled downward ever since. It's wrenching to view and becomes more so as Keane slowly rebuilds his life, befriending a mother (Ryan) and her small daughter when they move in next to him at a hotel for transients. Writer-director Lodge Kerrigan (Claire Dolan) has made a heartbreaking film, and Lewis (HBO's Band of 'Brothers) couldn't be better. (R)
