Eastwood has created a descent drama which plays in the 1950’ies USA. An Italian (?) (maffia) family is shook up when the eldest daughter is found dead. A policeman with close connections to the family investigates the murder and the father uses his own network to find the killer.
“Mystic River” shows how old structures collide with new and has a few twists to prove that not everything is what is seems to be.
