Libby Day (Charlize Theron) was only seven years old when her mother and two sisters were brutally murdered in their rural Kansas farmhouse and her testimony put her troubled 16-year-old brother, Ben, in prison for life. Twenty-five years later, a cash-strapped Libby reluctantly agrees to revisit the crime for a fee and uncovers the wrenching truths that led up to the tragic night in DARK PLACES, an ingeniously twisted thriller based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl).
Writer/Director, Gilles Paquet-Brenner (SARAH’S KEY, PRETTY THINGS) directed DARK PLACES based on the original novel written by Gillian Flynn. DAKR PLACES starts its run at The Music Box Theatre on Friday, August 7th, 2015 at The Music Box Theatre, 3733 North Southport.
