THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED, a tense and twisty British thriller, comes out on Blu-ray™ and DVD November 23rd, from Anchor Bay Entertainment. I have yet to see the film myself but have heard great things about it. A brand new DVD Trailer for the film can be seen below.
Described as a “brutally efficient thriller” by Mike Hale of the New York Times, the film draws the viewer into a daring kidnapping scheme that complicates the balance of power between captor and victim with fast-paced action, smart dialogue, and sharp performances by an elite and award-winning British cast. Produced by Adrian Sturges (The Escapist), the film stars Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans, Prince of Persia), Martin Compston (Sweet Sixteen, Red Road) and Eddie Marsan (Happy-Go-Lucky, Sherlock Holmes).
On a suburban street, two masked men seize a young woman. They bind and gag her and take her to an abandoned, soundproofed apartment. She is Alice Creed (Gemma Arterton), daughter of a millionaire. Her kidnappers, the coldly efficient Vic (Eddie Marsan) and his younger accomplice Danny (Martin Compston), have worked out a meticulous plan. But Alice is not going to play the perfect victim – she isn’t about to let her captors use her as capital without a fight. Alice enters into a battle of wills which strains the already fractious relationship between the two men. As the deadline for the exchange draws nearer, all three are brought close to the breaking point, with Vic and Danny’s foolproof plan descending into a desperate struggle for survival. In a tense power-play of greed, duplicity, and survival we discover that sometimes disappearances can be deceptive, and even the most meticulous plans can go awry if you don’t choose your victim wisely.
