'Dark Places'

Having written both the novel and the screenplay for David Fincher’s adaptation of the bestseller Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn hands the reins over to Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key), who writes and directs this take on Flynn’s novel about Libby Day (Sterling Jerins), a 7-year-old girl whose family is brutally murdered in their Kansas farmhouse. The main story picks up 25 years later, when the adult Libby (Charlize Theron) decides to return to the scene of the crime in order to expose what happened that night, and hopefully set herself on the path to recovery. With Nicholas Hoult, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll, Tye Sheridan and Chloë Grace Moretz. (Opens Friday) (R) Not screened in time for review
