Alyssa’s Pick of the Week: Gone

Action/Thriller starring Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Carpenter, and Sebastian Stan. Opening February 24th. Jill comes home from a night shift to discover her sister has been abducted, having escaped the kidnapper, she goes on a quest to save her sister. – Rated PG-13

This is essentially the ultimate box office test for Amanda Seyfried. She’s had a pretty promising career after her breakout in Mean Girls. I still have mixed feelings about whether or not she’s a good actress, but I will give her a chance to prove herself. This won’t necessarily be the movie to do the job, but it’ll be nice to see a female in the driver’s seat for a full-throttle thrill ride.
