'Every Secret Thing' is Every Mother's Nightmare

I wasn’t sure what to expect from "Every Secret Thing" other than an enjoyable cast. This movie has an odd predilection for biracial baby abductions. Two girls, Ronnie Fuller (Dakota Fanning) and Alice Manning (Danielle Macdonald), are the prime suspects of the latest kidnapping. Two detectives, Nancy Porter (Elizabeth Banks) and Kevin Jones (Nate Parker), are in charge of nabbing the abductors. Caught in between is Helen Manning (Diane Lane), who is the mother of Alice and protector of Ronnie, whom she has favored ever since Ronnie was a little girl.

The word twisted doesn’t even begin to describe the motivations of neither Alice nor Ronnie, let alone Alice’s detached mother. Helen and Alice’s mother/daughter relationship is unquestionably Jerry Springer material.

However, I would recommend to watch "Prisoners" starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman. In terms of suspense and showing the desperation of the frightened parents, this film transcends effortlessly this shallow attempt. The two teenagers Alice (Danielle M...

Every Secret Thing Thrives on Girl Power

On the surface, Every Secret Thing is a standard crimer/thriller/mystery - a murder, suspects released followed by an eerily similar crime shortly after... but what sets it apart is the strong female cast and the revelation that the most manipulative people are often the most unassuming as well.

The film centers on two young women, Ronnie Fuller (Dakota Fanning) and Alice Manning (Danielle Macdonald) who were both sentenced to juvenile detention after taking and ultimately killing a young mixed-race baby. Now, after both have served their time and attempted to rejoin society, another mixed-race baby goes missing. Detective Nancy Porter (Elizabeth Banks) is on the case with her partner Kevin Jones (Nate Parker) and she soon ties the two cases together. She has little help from Alice's m...
