FBI agent Jennifer Marsh is tasked with hunting down a seemingly untraceable serial killer who posts live videos of his victims on the Internet. As time runs out, the cat and mouse chase becomes more personal.
The movie does a fantastic job pointing out how sick some people can be for attention. Even more strong of a point considering the movie looks like it took place before social media.
It's a well balanced but very sad story about two girls who become the suspects in a missing persons case because they were convicted of the same crime seven years ago.
The movie had some great performances by the entire cast. Elisabeth Banks and Nate Parker play two cops who catch the case of the missing persons. Daykota Fanning plays one of the suspects recently released from prison for killing a baby when she was just a child. Diane Lane, who played the over barring mother of one of the suspects. Then there is Danielle Macdonald who seems new to the acting game playing the other suspect. Common also has a small part as the boyfriend of mother of the mission child.
I liked how the story played out. Not too much info on the characters were given at once but in pieces, pieces that help you see the depth in all of them. It was also a better way to unravel the crime mystery.
I really recommend seeing the flick, it's like a an episode of Law & Order Special Victims Unit, but with better cinematography.
