We meet again!! I selected a thriller for the letter V.
Starring: Kiefer Sutherland, Sandra Bullock, Nancy Travis and Jeff Bridges
The Vanishing is a remake of the 1988 French-Dutch film of the same name.
Jeff (Sutherland) and his girlfriend, Diane (Bullock) are on a vacation together when she just mysteriously vanishes. He is obsessed with finding her. From flyers to tv appearances pleading for any information. After some time has passed, he meets and falls in love with Rita (Travis).
Rita believes Jeff has let his investigation into Diane’s disappearance go. She soon finds evidence to the contrary and his lies creates a rift between them. She leaves him.
Jeff is then approached by a man named Barney (Bridges) that claims to know what happened to Diane. But in order to find out the truth, he tells him he must go through what she did. He hands him coffee that is drugged and would knock him out.
I would finish but then you’d know everything!! A great movie that makes you question how far you’d go to know the truth about a lost loved one.
The letter U. I had a hard time deciding between two movies. I decided to go with a comedy.
Starring: the late John Candy, Jean Louisa Kelly, Macaulay Culkin, Gaby Hoffman, Amy Madigan and Laurie Metcalf
