Lost Child from 2017 is an emotional and tense drama film directed and written by Ramaa Mosley. The film stars Leven Rambin, Jim Parrack, and Taylor John Smith in the lead roles. The movie tells the story of Fern, a young woman who is struggling with feelings of isolation as a waitress in a small southern town. Fern's life changes when she encounters an abandoned child named Emily who was found in the woods. Emily awakens something deep within Fern and she begins to see visions of her own past, which she has repressed for years.

Fern takes Emily into her care and becomes invested in her life. As she starts to enable the little girl's ability to draw and paint, their relationship creates a strong bond between them. Fern is drawn to Emily and wants to keep her, but the town and the locals see her as a symbol of evil and demand that she be returned to her true parents. Fern is reluctant to give up the little girl since she feels that this is what her fate has led her to do.

As Fern fights to keep the little girl with her, she realizes that Emily is not just an ordinary child. There is a supernatural element to Emily and Fern must come to terms with the idea that she may have been chosen for a higher purpose. The townspeople, who are superstitious, are aggressively opposed to Fern and Emily, and their hostility worsens when it becomes clear that Fern will not separate from Emily, at any cost.

The relationship between Fern and Emily strengthens, as Fern protects her, and teaches her about life. Fern understands that Emily is not an ordinary child and that she has a gift. She dotes on the child and becomes a protective mother, who will stop at nothing to protect Emily from the people of the town who want to take her away.

As Fern is faced with a difficult decision, whether to return the child or continue to protect her, she must confront her past regrets and buried secrets. Fern begins to see ghosts from her past that reveal to her the truth about her own identity as well as the possible origin of her relationship with Emily. The movie acquires a thrilling dimension as we discover the true backstory of Fern and understand better what motivates her to hold on to Emily, despite the opposition and rising risks.

The acting by the three main leads is top tier. Leven Rambin gives a powerful performance as Fern, a waitress who is seeking redemption in the form of a mysterious little girl. Jim Parrack is convincing as the sheriff, who is caught between his duty to the town and his desire to be a father figure to Fern. Taylor John Smith is equally impressive as the drifter who is drawn to the emotional turmoil of the lead character Fern.

The movie's supernatural elements, which are hinted at throughout, culminate in a well-constructed dramatic climax. With a perfect blend of drama, horror, and fantasy, Lost Child is a masterful execution of a powerful story. It is an emotional roller coaster that will leave audiences moved by the story of two people from different worlds, who find love and acceptance in each other.
