Star power doesn’t necessarily equate to a good film, but considering its cast includes the likes of Jon Hamm and Josh Lucas, director Anders Anderson’s Stolen certainly is in the running to provide a good time to viewers, which is probably why IFC Films snapped up the North American rights to the mystery thriller.
Variety reports that Stolen will be released on video-on-demand March 3 and will open at the Clearview Chelsea in New York on March 12 and the Sunset 5 in Los Angeles on March 19. Along with Hamm (pictured) and Lucas, James Van Der Beek and Rhona Mitra co-star, and screenwriter Taranto also appears in the film.
Here’s the synopsis courtesy of IFC: Work has become an obsession for Detective Tom Adkins (Hamm) since the disappearance of his ten-year-old son, Tommy Jr. When an early morning phone call leads him to the mangled remains of a young boy who was brutally murdered 50 years ago, Adkins takes on the case in hopes of finding absolution. His investigation leads him to a man who lived in 1958 named Matthew Wakefield (Lucas) and his innocent son, John. The striking similarities in the cases push Adkins’ obsession over the top. Barely holding onto his sanity and bound by redemption, Adkins unravels the unspeakable truth behind what happened to his son.
President of IFC Entertainment Jonathan Sehring commented, “Stolen delivers terrific performances by Josh Lucas and Jon Hamm. We are excited to work with [producer] Andy Steinman and Anders Anderson, who have crafted a thriller that will keep audiences guessing until the very end. This is a great movie for our theatrical and VOD platforms.”
