A film by Lodge Kerrigan
2004, 94 minutes
No. 359

A NEW 4K RESTORATION OF THE ACCLAIMED FILM. William Keane (Damian Lewis) is barely able to cope. It has been six months since his six-year-old daughter was abducted from New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal while traveling with him. Repeatedly drawn to the site of the abduction, Keane wanders the bus station, compulsively replaying the events of that fateful day, as if hoping to change the outcome. One day he meets a financially strapped woman, Lynn Bedik (Amy Ryan), and her seven-year-old daughter, Kira (Abigail Breslin), at a transient hotel. Keane becomes increasingly attached to Kira and, in a harrowing climax, uses her in an attempt to fill the void left by his daughter’s disappearance.

Executive produced by Steven Soderbergh.

    “A very fine film with an unexpected jolt of deep feeling. Mr. Kerrigan pulls off an extremely deft narrative sleight of hand.” - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

    “Lodge Kerrigan has made a stunningly intimate psychological thriller — scary, brilliant and wrenchingly sad. Damian Lewis gives an Oscar-worthy performance.” - Karen Durbin, Elle

    • "Astonishing. Visceral and flooring." - Wesley Morris, The Boston Globe

      “Lodge Kerrigan is without peer at plumbing the violence of the mind. KEANE means to shake us, and does.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

        "A masterfully harrowing psychodrama. It was with KEANE, his third feature (and first co-produced by Steven Soderbergh), that Kerrigan secured his reputation as a singular, celebrated voice of the modern American independent cinema." - Isaac Feldberg,
