In this drama, directed by Martin Campbell, Gibson plays homicide detective Thomas Craven. As he investigates the death of his activist daughter, he uncovers not only her secret life, but a corporate cover-up and government collusion that attracts an agent tasked with cleaning up the evidence. Co-starring Ray Winstone and Danny Huston.
The stress, the traumatic experience of losing a child like that, has him just a little unhinged and walking around most of the time in a state of near breakdown. He is close–right at the edge–but he can’t let it crack too much because he’s got a job to do.
