Set in a Tex-Mex border town, Not Forgotten is a classic psychological thriller about Jack and Amaya Bishop, a couple who must come to terms with their tortured pasts in order to save their kidnapped daughter. It is a tale taut with intrigue and steeped in Latino mysticism, where the line between what's real and what's imagined becomes hopelessly blurred.

Did You Know?

Paz Vega replaced Jordana Brewster at the last minute.

Toby Bishop: In Del Rio Texas, Saturdays were all about soccer. Fresh cut oranges, screaming parents, cheesy uniforms, teamwork and winning. I used to live for those games, and then one day I just stopped caring.

User Review

If you'll like dark & twisty, you'll like it...


I love dark, twisted movies, and this is definitely right up there... an awesome thriller!

All of the religious rituals are pretty disturbing (but incredibly fascinating). The idea these people really exist and actually practice these rituals freaked me out!

All in all, I thought it was thought provoking, the performances were great, and the ending was entirely unexpected. I got the feeling there might be a sequel; if that's the case, I would definitely see it too.

Long story short: If you're into thrillers with some brains, then you'll really like Not Forgotten.
