The Disappearance of Alice Creed 2009

images-1

Writer/director J Blakeson made the most of a limited budget with this theatrical Uk thriller, a kidnapping drama with twists and turns that would have amused Peter Shaffer. Gemma Arterton is Alice Greed, the daughter of a rich man, who is unceremoniously kidnapped by two men Vic and Danny (Eddie Marsan and Martin Compson). All is not what it seems, but Blakeson does well with a few Isle of Man locations, and strong performances from all three leads keep the momentum going for the full 96 minutes.  The Disappearance Of Alice Creed does contain some strong, disturbing sexual scenes, but they’re justified in terms of the plot, and well-handled.
