Critics Consensus

Thanks in large part to strong performances by Sissy Spacek and Jack Lemmon, Missing is both a gripping character exploration and an effective political thriller.

Movie Info

In 1973, U.S. businessman Ed Horman (Jack Lemmon) arrives in Chile to look for his son, Charles (John Shea), a politically left-leaning journalist who disappeared during a military coup. Charles' wife, Beth (Sissy Spacek), has been looking for some time, but her requests for help from the U.S. consulate have thus far produced few results. As Ed and Beth try to figure out what really happened to Charles, Ed realizes that the American officials may know more than they're telling.

Audience Reviews for Missing

  • Oct 22, 2017
    Costa-Gavras' political rage is palpable here, but it's Lemmon and Spacek who sell the film's message.
    Alec B Super Reviewer

    A good, if not great thriller that explores themes of government corruption and lies. While the performances are fantastic, the film is muddled and very little actually happens - making the whole thing seem pointless in the end.

    This is likely the only treatment of the Chilean civil war brought to American audiences. Unfortunately we never confirm that it is indeed Chile that we are talking about. It is a tale of trying to take control what is beyond our control. Lemmon in particular shines as usual.
    John B Super Reviewer

    Incredible performances by Jack Lemon and Sissy Spacek under Gavras' strong direction make this not much remembered film worthwhile.
