With equal parts sensitivity and suspense, Elizabeth is Missing displays an emotional range that is sometimes uncommon in crime by interweaving it with an intensely personal drama. The result is mesmerizing.

The film is a frustrating work in that it details layers and layers of frustration on every front, but it's also simple, beautiful, and effective. Elizabeth may be missing in a tangible sense, but increasingly in her own life, Maud is too.

It's a great setup for a straightforward mystery, but "Elizabeth Is Missing" is more complicated than that, and while you can't hold that ambition against it, you might wish that you were watching something simpler.

Wrap those big puzzles around a performance as great as Jackson's and this is a tightly told story well worth checking out, even if you may need the mystery to pique your initial curiosity.

It's both emotionally challenging and entertaining, and it once again shows the range that has distinguished "Masterpiece" across the decades.

Ms. Jackson has always shown herself to be an exacting and gifted artist, but Maud Horsham is the kind of role that requires much more out of a performer than just actorly craft. And that, happily, is what we get.
