Synopsis:
Sixteen years after her daughter Maggie disappeared in Central Park, Julia (Sigourney Weaver) has never recovered from the loss, and pursues a solitary existence based on rigid routine. Her son Chris (Alessandro Nivola) is trying to reconnect with his mother in anticipation of his marriage to Celeste (Keri Russell). One day, Julia encounters a troubled, alluring young woman, Louise (Kate Bosworth), who reminds her powerfully of her vanished child. The two begin a series of tense encounters, and eventually Julia takes Louise in. As their bond deepens, Julia begins to reawaken to the pleasures of life -- all the while seeing everywhere clues that Louise could actually be the long-lost Maggie.

Leave in the park - The Girl in the Park review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
10/06/2009

This is a somewhat disappointing drama that really fails to establish any emotional ground and develop a convincing or enticing storyline. David Auburn was previously known as writer of the reasonable Lake House, now expanding into directing here for what is his debut. His inexperience shines through, as this is a plodding visual drama, while the storyline is as predictable as his earlier writing credits. Weaver goes through a whole range of painful experiences as she tries to forget the loss of a child. Like Doubt before it, Girl In The Park leaves you questioning the experience you’ve endured and ensures you must rely exclusively on your opinion for a conclusion.
