At the time of filming in 2008, Rhona Mitra, who played Barbara, was 32 years old. Barbara says that eight years after his disappearance Tommy junior would now be 18 years old. Since Barbara appears to be the same age as the actress, that would mean that Barbara would have been about 13-15 years old at the time of Tommy junior's birth. See more »
When Rose hangs herself it shows her stepping up on the bench from the vanity, which would be no more than 20 - 24 inches high, but when Matthew finds her, the body is much higher off the ground, higher than the vanity itself. See more »
Tom Adkins Sr.:
He has his mother's eyes. Her hair. My face, my laugh. First time I held him I knew he was my son. The best of me and his mother. I can still see his eyes light up watching those fireworks. I gave him everything a father can give a son. And now with all this searching, being a cop, being a father, I still can't find my boy.

If you are looking for something to pass 90 minutes, you could do a lot worse.
The story basically is a cop, Tom Adkins, is haunted by the disappearance of his son 8 years ago. Then he discovers the remains of another boy about the same age as his own son, who was murdered 50 years previously. He becomes obsessed with the case, which has been long-forgotten. Is the 1958 case, involving down-on-his-luck dad of three family man, Matthew Wakefield and his own sons disappearance linked in any way to that of Tom Adkins?
Acting is fine by all.
Personally I thought the film started really well, and I thought the 1958 story was more interesting than the present story. But the ending seemed a tad rushed.
But, not a bad film at all.
My advice...well worth renting....but don not buy! (It's a watch once film)
