Review of A Dark Place by Peter Walkden
Set in Western Pennsylvania, A Dark Place follows a man named Donald (Andrew Scott). Donald gets up daily and drives a garbage truck collecting trash, taking notice of the people around his daily routine. One day Donald notices that a young boy who usually waves at him isn’t there. Soon Donald’s daughter confirms that the young boy is now missing and has disappeared.
Donald cannot help himself. He begins to question what has happened to this young boy. He even begins his own little investigation, researching on the internet and questions those who may know the truth. Soon Donald finds himself rather determined and obsessed to see the truth about this disappearance.
The performance here from Andrew Scott was excellent. Donald, as a character, he has an incredible eye for details that other people wouldn’t usually pick up. Donald is also quite passionate when it comes to family matters. As a film, it doesn’t take long for Donald to get invested in this mystery even if his reasons for doing so aren’t entirely clear to the audience.
The performance here from Andrew Scott was very good. Donald, as a character, he has a talented eye for finer details that other people around him would not usually see. Donald is also quite invested when it comes to family and personal matters. As a film, it does not take long for Donald to get involved in this mystery even if his reasons for doing so aren’t entirely clear.
Overall, A Dark Place is most certainly a slow-burning thriller with a great mystery and dark themes. The lead performance by actor Andrew Scott is rather pleasing as he plays a character who finds himself in a larger puzzle. Movie lovers who are seeking thrills with twists and turns should check this title out.
