Every Secret Thing (2015)
Critic Consensus: Every Secret Thing has a sterling pedigree both on and off the screen, yet all that talent adds up to little more than a listless, predictable thriller.

Critic Reviews for Every Secret Thing
It's described as a smart, suspenseful psychological thriller, but there's nothing smart about it, and as an alleged thriller, when the mysteries are explained in a twist finale, it could use a psychologist of its own.
Diane Lane is chilling as Alice's shifty mother, and though some of the "secret things" are Law & Order predictable, other revelations will haunt you for days.
The mystery-movie-of-the-week premise is buoyed by the evenly detailed performances from the four female leads
What went wrong? How did so many talented people devote their time and energy to a film that came out this generic, dull, and flat?
Audience Reviews for Every Secret Thing
Really enjoyed this dark thriller. I didn't guess the truth of what happened (not even close), and Dakota is fantastic as always. Though it has the feel of a law and order episode and filmed about as well, the good story and cast shine through that.
Incredibly disturbing, Every Secret Thing is a dark thriller that's full of suspense. Based on a novel, the story follows two teenage girls who are struggling to integrate back into society after serving time for the kidnapping and accidental death of a baby, and when another child kidnapping occurs the police suspect them and start to re-investigate the first kidnapping. Starring Elizabeth Banks, Dakota Fanning, and Diane Lane, the cast is pretty good and give some strong performances; especially Fanning, who really sells the despair and loneliness of her character. However, the mystery unravels fairly easily and without much investigation. And the resolution is a little unsatisfying. Still, while it has some problems, Every Secret Thing is a powerful film about the face of evil.
