Fractured begins with a family driving down the highway on their way home after visiting family for Thanksgiving. The parents are arguing while their little girl sits in the backseat. Soon, the little girl has to use the bathroom, so the father pulls over at the next gas station. While there, Ray monroe (Sam Worthington) and his daughter Peri (Luci Capri) have an accident which leads them to bringing her to the local hospital.
At the hospital, the doctor suggests they take Peri down to imaging for some x-rays. Ray must wait in the waiting area while his wife, Joanne (Lily Rabe) accompanies her daughter. After hours of waiting, Ray becomes agitated and begins to search for his family. The hospital staff inform him that he never brought in any family members with him, and he was the only one treated for head trauma. Soon, there is a race to find his family, that involves the local police and a psychiatrist.
I must say that I thought I had the movie figured out before it began. Yet, while I watched the movie, there were multiple clues and scenes that made me second-guess the conclusion I was making. At times, I simply thought Ray was imagining everything, and at others, I thought the hospital was secretly harvesting peoples’ organs.
I had to wait until the end of the movie to discover what was really going on. I love these kinds of movies. They make you think all the way through the film. Fractured was well written, and Sam Worthington gave a great performance. I recommend watching Fractured if you enjoy watching psychological thrillers.
