Goofs

In the opening scene, shot across the bridge into the village, across the bottom of the screen are the words "Shade Gap, PA, 1966." Right above those words is a grey pickup truck parked in a driveway - a 1968 Ford F100. To the right, almost totally obscured by bushes, you can see the tail lights of a Chevy Blazer. See more »

a reasonable film
18 December 2002 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I liked this film, not only because it was well played by the leading 2 characters, but also because it did'nt stray onto the territory of abuse or violence this kind of film could have displayed, if it had been daring enough, it could have shown to the full the humiliation and degrading way in which Peggy Anne was treated, but it just lifts the surface of what could have been quite a disturbing film if it had been made for the big screen. I have to say the film is slightly wayward to the extent in which it almost made you feel sorry for the kidnapper, as he really did'nt do much in the film to deserve him the right to be hailed down with a hail of bullets. Even so I still enjoyed it.
