Can Atom Egoyan get his groove back? It has been a while since the director showcased the skill he brought to films like "The Sweet Hereafter" or "Felicia's Journey," and last weekend's "Devil's Knot" was another in a string of recent pictures that were tepidly received by both critics and the public. But "The Captive" finds him in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and the first clip is here highlighting the drama to come.

Can Atom Egoyan get his groove back? It has been a while since the director showcased the skill he brought to films like "The Sweet Hereafter" or "Felicia's Journey," and last weekend's "Devil's Knot" was another in a string of recent pictures that were tepidly received by both critics and the public. But "The Captive" finds him in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and the first clip is here highlighting the drama to come.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman, Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, the film tells the story of Matthew, a father who is convinced eight years after his daughter’s abduction, thanks to a series of new clues, that she's still alive. And in this first clip from the movie, we see the father and daughter in happier times, picking up dinner, though with weather providing an ominous backdrop against which darker things are sure to come.

eOne will distribute the film in Canada and is handling international sales. Watch below and check out a few new photos and the French poster as well.
