The Deep End of the Ocean (1999)

PG-13 03/12/1999 (US) DramaMystery 1h 46m

The search for her son was over. The search for her family was just beginning.


Michelle Pfeiffer is ferocious in the role of a desperate mother whose 3-year-old son disappears during her high school reunion. Nine years later, by chance, he turns up in the town in which the family has just relocated. Based on Jacquelyn Mitchard's best-selling novel (an Oprah book club selection), the movie effectively presents the troubling dynamics that exist between family members who've suffered such an unsettling loss.
