In a bleak suburb of Philadelphia, police detective Mare Sheehan is juggling two crimes: the recent murder of a teenage mother and a young girl missing for almost a year. Mare is also trying to keep her own life from falling apart which includes a divorce, a son who committed suicide, dealing with her overbearing mother, Helen, a custody battle with her former daughter-in-law,  a fractious relationship with her teenage daughter, and the unwelcome assignment of  Colin Zabel, an aggressive assistant detective.

If you can have a defining performance this late in a career, this is surely Winslet’s. She is absolutely wonderful – and ably supported by the rest of the cast.
