Life imitates art?

From Variety: Gone Baby Gone -- Ben Affleck's directorial debut, based on the novel by Mystic River author Dennis Lehane -- is gone, gone, gone from the line-up of next month's London Film Festival, due to some unfortunate similarities between the movie's fictional plot and the ongoing case of missing British youngster Madeleine McCann, who disappeared from her Portuguese holiday apartment in early May. It doesn't help much that Madeline O'Brien, the actress cast as the kidnap victim in Affleck's movie, bears a physical resemblance to her British namesake.
