Five Days ★★½ 2007

Leanne (Tremarco) and her two children disappear from their car while at a rest stop—all of which is captured by CCTV cameras. The children are later found but the police investigation becomes a major news story and the action unfolds on days 1, 3, 28, 33, and 79. As the story proceeds, it becomes clear that nothing (and no one) is quite as it seems, even when the missing persons case turns into a murder inquiry. 300m/C DVD .
