Keane Q&A

Damian seen at Keane 4K screening on Saturday, August 20, 2022. Blue suede shoes with purple socks and all 🙂 Watch the complete Q&A video below and see more photos from the event in our gallery here.

Moderated by Christopher Abbot, Damian and director Lodge Kerrigan joined viewers for an in-person Q&A on Saturday, August 20, 2022 after the 6:30 p.m. screening of the 2004 movie Keane at Film Lincoln Center in New York City.  One audience member shared, “The restoration of the 2004 film was stunning. Damian’s performance was incredibly moving. And, the Q&A with Director Lodge [Kerrigan] was a massive treat.”

Grasshopper Film snapped up distribution rights to the critically acclaimed pic for the U.S. theatrical release, which is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh and produced by Andrew Fierberg.  As previously reported here, the movie will also get a release in Los Angeles on August 28 and Boston on September 23. In addition, the movie is expected to be released on VOD, TV and home video soon. (The movie received a limited theatrical release in New York back in 2005.)

Keane turns on William Keane (Lewis) who is struggling to cope six months after his six-year-old daughter was abducted from New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal while traveling with him. Repeatedly drawn to the site of the abduction, Keane wanders the bus station, compulsively replaying the events of that fateful day as if hoping to change the outcome. When one day he meets a financially strapped woman, Lynn Bedik (Amy Ryan), and her seven-year-old daughter, Kira (Abigail Breslin), at a transient hotel, Keane becomes increasingly attached to Kira and uses her to fill the void left by his own daughter’s disappearance.

Criterion’s Review of Lodge Kerrigan’s Keane [Theatrical Review]

Lewis is an Absolute Revelation: A Gorgeously Urgent Piece of Filmmaking

by Joshua Brunsting | Criterion Cast | August 19, 2022

Now nearly 30 years on from his debut feature, Clean, Shaven, director Lodge Kerrigan has become arguably better known for his TV work (primarily as creator on the TV adaptation of The Girlfriend Experience as well as stints on everything from The Killing to Longmire) than his feature work, with only four features to his name. However, with one in The Criterion Collection and now one the recipient of a breathtaking new restoration from Grasshopper Films, Kerrigan may be on the brink of the reappraisal his career deserves.

Originally released in 2004, Keane stars Damian Lewis as the titular William Keane, a man on the edge of sanity following a terrible tragedy. William has, according to his disturbingly vivid memory, seen his marriage crumble in the wake of the abduction of his daughter six months prior to the start of the film. Trolling New York City’s Port Authority bus terminal in the hopes of replaying the events enough to catch the kidnapper in the act again, William begins to get closer to a woman (Amy Ryan) and more specifically her seven-year-old daughter Kira (Abigail Breslin), culminating in one of the more harrowing and unnerving finales of the early 2000s. With as much a focus on mental instability as seen in his debut film, Kerrigan shines his ever bright light upon the world of mental health once again for this long underrated masterpiece, spearheaded by a career defining lead performance and some stunning cinematography.
