Hidden Away 2013

Hidden Away

     Stephanie and her daughter Sage leave their home in a rowboat during a rainstorm.  Andrew has been hitting his wife Stephanie and she believes he will also start hitting his stepdaughter.  Andrew calls the police and he doesn’t admit that he has any fault in their leaving.  Since they cannot be found, it is presumed they drowned in the river.  Stephanie has been planning for them to leave and they assume new identities in another state.  They have managed to make a new life for themselves and it has been 10 years.  Andrew asks an exterminator to remove raccoons from the attic and the man finds a metal box with information on how to change your identity.  He hires a private investigator to track down Stephanie and Sage.
      I thought this was a TV movie but it didn’t have the breaks for the commercials so I wasn’t sure until after viewing.  Of course, Andrew is a total bad guy and he claims only to want money but he wants a lot more than money.  This needs better acting and directing to elevate it above a TV movie.  2 ½* (This movie is so-so)

84 min, TV Movie, Drama directed by Peter Sullivan with Emmanuelle Vaugier, Ivan Sergei, Sean Patrick Flanery, Allie Gonino, Elisabeth Rohm, Thomas Calabro.

Note:  Imdb 5.4 out of 10, 3.8/5 with 9 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, Amazon 3.3* out of 5* with 6 reviews.
