Sep 11, 2011I liked the intertwined stories between the 2 time periods.Sarah P Super Reviewer
Jun 10, 2011The cast was certainly better than the material. An interesting premise taken to an unbelievable conclusion, Stolen Lives is a flawed movie. But I couldn't help but like the somber tone, and the 1958 storyline I found significantly more compelling than the modern day storyline. Being a big Mad Men fan I really like Jon Hamm. But I worry he won't escape the fate of David Duchovny. Duchovny was born to play Fox Mulder, and has found dubious success outside of that role. Jon Hamm was seemingly born to play Don Draper, but outside of that role he's yielded similar results as Duchovny.Jeffrey M Super Reviewer
May 07, 2011It is 2008 and Detective Tom Adkins(Jon Hamm) is called to a crime scene at a building site with his wife Barbara(Rhona Mitra) to see if the body is that of their son who disappeared from a diner eight years previously. It turns out that it is not theirs since the body is fifty years old. It is 1958 and Matthew Wakefield(Josh Lucas) has two days to make a payment on his mortgage or the bank will foreclose on his house. In fact, he does not even have that much time when his wife hangs herself. And then it turns out that his sister Coral(Kali Rocha) can only take in two of his sons, leaving John(Jimmy Bennett) in his care. "Stolen" might possibly have had a chance at success if it had stayed mostly with solving the 1950's mystery in the present because all we need to know about Matthew is that he is a drifter with a son, along with Jon Hamm nailing the anguish of a grieving parent perfectly. That's not excusing the movie's predictability, rendering it pretty much routine anyway, as this is the kind of movie that is designed to get under the skin of parents by warning them never to turn their backs on their children for a second or else very bad things will happen.(Look, I hate kids, will never have any and frankly don't care.) But blinking is still okay.Walter M Super Reviewer
