At a stop at a gas station Ray (Worthington) and Joanne’s (Rabe) 6-year-old daughter has an accident and the couple takes her to the hospital. Mother and daughter are taken in for examination but when Ray asks about them after waiting for hours, no one knows who is talking about. It is like they have vanished from the earth.
Fractured has received great response from both critiques and viewers and for good reason. This suspenseful thriller can be described as a mixture of Hitchcock and The Twilight Zone as Ray sets out to find out, what exactly happened to his family and as the movie moves forward, the answer appears more and more spectacular. Many has especially praised the surprising ending but also the great acting from everyone involved. Worthington (Avatar, 2009) is amazing as the struggling father while Rabe best known for American Horror Story leaves you wanting her in more movies. The characters are well-written, it is nice to see a movie where the police acts in a sensible and realistic manner, but the best part is thinking back the storyline after watching the ending. Solid thriller.
This is the first feature film for young actress Lucy Capri.
