A veteran detective investigates a child murder in small-town Nevada, a case he carries over into his retirement by moving into the neighbourhood where the killing occurred. When he begins a relationship with a local mother and her young daughter, he has all the more reason to nail the killer – but by this time his colleagues reckon they have long since wrapped up an open-and-shut case.

Rated R for violence, a strong sex scene, and some language, it co-stars Patricia Clarkson, Aaron Eckhart, Helen Mirren, Robin Wright Penn, Vanessa Redgrave, Sam Shepard, Mickey Rourke, and Benicio del Toro.

The film sports a 78% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Though its subject matter is grim and may make viewers queasy, The Pledge features an excellent, subtle performance by Jack Nicholson.
