Storyline

Every six minutes in America, someone's identity is stolen. When Michelle Brown walked into an office one day to fill out a simple rental form, then handed it to the receptionist, she never dreamed that her information would fall into the wrong hands. As Michelle keeps receiving hefty bills for services and merchandise she never purchased, it doesn't take her long to figure out that someone has stolen her identity, and is determined to take over her life, no matter the cost. But when a warrant is issued for the arrest of the imposter, the real Michelle is wrongly accused. With her life escalating out of control, Michelle must regain her own self to confront her nemesis, and appeal to the U.S. Senate for more concise identity theft laws. Written by Icedberry

Bland, weak and extremely predictable biographic movie
1 September 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a mostly failed attempt at producing a biographic movie out of the real-life story of a woman whose identity was stolen and went through a difficult time to clear her name.

It had a good story line to cling on, exploring a theme that is not overused in drama or thriller movies.

However, the overall quality of production and editing is awful. Acting is not as awful, but whatever qualities the cast had were canceled by the extremely predictable scene and lines. Character building is non-existent, it appears they took every single one from a menu of pre-packaged profiles.

In the end, the whole movie looks like it was an overambitious Public Service Announcement.
