Remember a few months back when we reviewed Captive? Well back then it was only available as a book. But Thanks to Hollywood they turned this real life story into a movie. Starring David Oyelowo as Brian Nichols and Kate Mara as Ashley Smith, the two main characters. They bring Ashley’s recollection of the events to life on the big screen.
At some point in your life you have felt held captive. Whether it’s been financial struggles holding you back, not being confident in your self to take the big job offer or just feeling like your hands are tied and you are unable to move. Being held captive doesn’t have to be a physical situation, it can be emotional too. There have been times I have felt held captive.
But for Ashley Smith she was held captive. Physically. By a stranger. That everyone was looking for. So what did she do? She took control of the situation and turned it around. She was determined to make it out of that apartment alive. And she did.
David and Kate draw you in while acting out the real life events that Ashley Smith and Brian Nichols endured. You feel like you are right there with Ashley as she tries to help Brian see things in a different light. See there is light at the end of a dark tunnel and that there are options.
When I read the book I couldn’t put it down. It was fascinating. The movie does not disappoint. Within the first few moments I found myself drawn into the film. You will see how with determination and strength one woman was able to survive and find her purpose in life even at an extremely dark moment.
Captive is now available on DVD all over. You can purchase Captive on Amazon or in stores.
