In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage - a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.
After moving with her mother to a small town, a teenager finds that an accident happened in the house at the end of the street. Things get more complicated when she befriends a boy who was the only survivor of the accident.
The address of the locksmith changes several times throughout the film and refers to locations in Portland, Maine - not Oregon: Jill's initial Google search shows it to be 789 NW Riverton, Portland, OR; the officer reporting it to Detective Hood states that Jill pulled a gun at a "locksmith over in Oakdale"; the police report regarding the incident lists the address as 651 Rivertone. Riveton is a street and Oakdale is a neighborhood in Portland, ME. Neither of them exist in Portland, OR. See more »
Are you going to say hi?
Maybe tomorrow after my final. Right now I've got to become an expert on marginal productivity theory.
I'd ask you what that is, but then I'm afraid you'd tell me.

I actually held off from watching this film, I guess because I have a thing against PG or PG 13 films, especially when is comes to horror, or thrillers. But guess what...'Gone' was really a good thriller as well as being a cool little mystery. I never heard of the Director (Heitor Dhalia) until this film and I must say I was quite impressed by the look and style of the film. Dhalia has a great eye, because the scenery in this film was simply breathtaking. A good pace was set and at times I found myself catching my breath due to some tense moments spread throughout the film. I was also impressed by Amanda Seyfried's performance, she held her own and delivered on all aspects of what her character was suppose to give in telling this story. My only grip was Wes Bentley's cop character. Bently's character wasn't really needed and didn't serve no actual purpose, although the film makers lead you to believe his character has some relevance to the story. 'Gone' is not a blockbuster type film, but holds it's own in the tradition of 'Kiss the girls' and other such film thrillers. So when you get a chance to see this film, get yourself, your date, or family a big bowl of popcorn and sit back, because you'll have a nice little viewing experience.
