Lost Girls

Amy Ryan blisters the movie screen like few others.

The veteran actress, so good in Gone Baby Gone, scores again as a New Yawk mom who relentlessly pursues the truth in the murky disappearances and deaths of several young women, including her own daughter.

Based on real life cases, some still unresolved, the film can’t always offer definitive answers, but it nails the atmosphere and gives Ryan a chance to royally rage.

Her verbal showdowns with fellow old pros like Gabriel Byrne leave lasting scars, and her gaze will sear your soul.

Where’s her Oscar, Hollywood? She’s way past due.
