Lost Boy is a thrilling drama film from 2015 directed by Tara Miele, featuring Virginia Madsen, Mark Valley, and Matthew Fahey in the leading roles. The storyline revolves around an estranged mother and her son who reconnect after he goes missing while traveling through California. At the beginning of the film, we see Jen (played by Madsen) receiving a distressing call from her 20-year-old son, Phil (played by Fahey). He tells her that he is lost somewhere in Northern California, and he needs her help to find his way back home. Jen, who is still recovering from the death of her husband and from her addiction, reluctantly agrees to drive out to California to find Phil.

As she embarks on her trip to California, she begins to unravel the mystery surrounding Phil's disappearance. Along the way, she meets the sheriff's deputy, John (played by Valley), who informs her that Phil is not the only young man who has gone missing in the area. Jen becomes obsessed with finding her son and getting to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the missing boys.

The film progresses with intense suspense and heartfelt emotion as Jen and John go on a thrilling journey through the rugged California countryside, following leads and piecing together the puzzle of the disappearances. They encounter various danger and obstacles as they get closer to the truth, including violent drug dealers and abusive boyfriends.

The film is beautifully shot, with stunning views of the California wilderness, and the performances by the lead actors are superb. Madsen delivers a powerful performance as the grieving mother desperate to find her son, and Valley exhibits strong masculinity as the deputy who becomes Jen's companion and ally.

The chemistry between the lead actors is subtle and nuanced, and the film's emotional depth is enhanced by the beautiful musical score by composer Jef Hall-Flavin. The screenplay, by Miele and Jennifer Maisel, is well-written and captures the haunting complexity of the relationships between Jen and her son, Jen and John, and the unique bonds between mothers and sons.

Overall, Lost Boy is a gripping drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. It explores themes of grief, addiction, loss, love, and the unbreakable bond between a mother and son. It is a thought-provoking and heartfelt film that offers both suspenseful thrills and emotional resonance, and it is a recommended watch for anyone looking for a compelling and well-crafted drama.
