In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. But when taking on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds winning may come at too high a price.
A workaholic father who attempts to visit his daughter during a layover in LA, only to discover that she's disappeared, is forced to team up with her awkward ex-boyfriend to find her over the course of one transformative night.
A triumphant epic of survival and a tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth. Our heroine is Liz (Dakota Fanning), carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, hunted by a vengeful Preacher (Guy Pearce) - a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis. But Liz is a genuine survivor; she's no victim - a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve. Fear not. Retribution is coming. Written by
Carice van Houten and Guy Pearce became romantically involved on the set. They missed the movie's premiere at the Venice Film Festival because their son, Monte Pearce, had been born just five days before (director Martin Koolhoven nicknamed him 'the Brimbaby'). See more »

At first I didn't want to watch this movie because of the name, but I'm glad I did. This story shows a glimpse of how hard it must have been for women back in the day! Perverts using religion to cover up their messed up heads!! This just shows the tip of the iceberg of all the struggles they were going through! People want to imagine "little house on the prairie" but this movie actually went there and showed some reality!
