Storyline
A man in his early 30s (Keane) struggles with the supposed loss of his daughter from port authority bus terminal in New York, while fighting serious battles with schizophrenia. We can never be sure if the loss is real or imaginary; or whether his overt interest in helping young girls is innocent and of a fatherly nature, or is of a darker, scarier motive.

User Review

Haunting, well-acted and worth seeing

Rating:


Keane is a haunting film about a man suffering from both schizophrenia
and the abduction of his 7 year old daughter. The director used long
takes and up-close shots so that the audience feels drawn into the
mindset of the man. While the movie is very intense, it is not
unbelievingly depressing primarily due to Damian Lewis' outstanding
performance as Keane. He befriends a single mom and her 7 year old
daughter and those scenes manage to convey a mix of sadness, humanity
and foreboding as we see Keane struggling with his inner demons. Most
Hollywood actors would give a scenery-chewing performance of grief and
madness – but Lewis gives a searing, contained portrayal. He shows us
this man's humanity, but does not flinch from also exposing his flaws,
including drug abuse and physical violence.
