Captivating!!
12 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a BRILLIANT way to make a PSA. Such a creative approach to show awareness of this horrible and haunting reality in the Atlanta Community.

I loved the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Theme...It really drew me in instantly!! This story touched me and brought me to tears.

I have known about this horrible victimizing problem in our Atlanta community for some time now and I am so pleased to see such a talented and bright production team bring light and attention to this horror.

I don't think anyone could of done it in a more captivating way. I loved the picture, script, talented actors,,,etc etc!!! Great job guys, GREAT JOB!
