Pheiffer & Sutherland Are Superb Here But the Film is Definitely Not For Everyone
Michelle Pfeiffer and Kiefer Sutherland are superb here, but this film is definitely not for everyone. The filmmakers make it a most difficult watch with many darkened scenes often shot from afar, very slow pacing, extremely irritating music at times, and a constant depressive tone.
However, if one can stay with this haunting drama the performances by the two leads are worth the price of admission, as I see it. At least it had an appropriate ending and not a totally convoluted one that are so in vogue these days.
Could have been so much better...
In Brooklyn, New York, Kyra (Michelle Pfeiffer) loses her job and struggles to survive on her ailing mother's income. As the weeks and months go on, her problems worsen. This leads her on a risky and enigmatic path that threatens her life. Michelle Pfeiffer does give a good overall perfomance in 'Where is Kyra?' but the film is very moody, dark and depressing that took me completely out of the film. This woman has been giving great perfomances for years anyways (remember Batman Returns?) but this movie doesn't exactly give her or the audience what they wanted to see or what perhaps they were expecting and the final product is very slow paced and also very boring as a whole and a waste of Pfeiffer's truly magnificent potentials as an actress. (5/10)

Beautiful in the Dark
"Where is Kyra?" - not just a film featuring one of the best performance from Michelle Pfeiffer, it's also one of the best movies she ever done in her entire career (At least the best since 2002's White Oleander).
Michelle Pfeiffer plays Kyra Johnson, a middle-aged, divorced woman who recently lost her mother and struggling to survive. The movie is stylishly directed by Andrew Dosunmu, It's the type of role we always want Michelle Pfeiffer to play-fragile, vulnerable, heartbreaking, yet also a life fighter, it has been ages since Michelle plays someone so real and solid like Kyra.
Despite the atmosphere of the film is overall depressive and chilling (the director treats it almost like a thriller in the second half of the movie), the love line between Kyra and Doug is extremely romantic.
"Where is Kyra?" is not something fun to watch, but it absolutely worth your time for an 1 hr and 38 mins character study of Kyra Johnson, with top class performance by Michelle Pfeiffer on screen every mins, and every mins of her on screen is a real treasure.
