Keane

4

One man in a big, big city looking for a six-year-old child... hopeless. About 20,000 kids go missing in NYC every year, making Joe Public shrug their collective shoulders to yet another parent’s plight. Especially one looking as beaten-down and schizo as Keane (Damian Lewis). Shot in 2004, Lodge Kerrigan’s intense, unsettling portrait of a man lost follows the impressive Lewis as he trawls, muttering to himself, around the Port Authority Bus Terminal – the place he says he last saw his daughter. With newspaper cuttings littering his hotel room, and his intentions towards a fellow guest’s daughter unknown, the sound of disquiet is deafening. Did he ever have a daughter? Did he abduct a girl? Could the date (12 September, year unknown) be of significance, especially in New York?
