The premise is engaging. Two kids go missing during a Thanksgiving dinner. The fear is a kidnapping with the probability of the girls being raped and killed. Such an outcome could make for a poignant movie, but director Denis Villeneuve would rather cater to the morals of its audience. Blunt realism is therefore overshadowed by silly unlikelihoods. The actions of Keller Dover, the father of one of the young girls, are particularly outrageous.
