The Clearing

Robert Redford, Willem Dafoe and Helen Mirren (not too shabby, eh?) star in this mature, slow-building thriller. A disgruntled employee (DaFoe, of course) kidnaps a rich, white collar executive (Redford, natch) and demands a sizable ransom. Meanwhile, the executive's wife (the Oscar-worthy Mirren) must deal with the ensuing FBI investigation. The acting is top shelf, and the story is surprisingly poignant for your basic crime thriller. 91 minutes
