Storyline

Seventeen years after she was abducted by a stranger named Benjamin McKay, twenty-three year old Leanne Dargon, who has been in his captivity all this time, is discovered, and eventually reunited with her biological parents, Marcy and Glen Dargon, while Ben is now in prison charged with her kidnap. Ben was able to hide her locked in his basement all this time, telling her that he saved her from world destruction, which she would have no reason not to believe. Leanne has no true recollection of her time before Ben, who renamed her Leia, and thus is the only family she has ever known. Over those seventeen years, Marcy and Glen dealt with the abduction in different ways, Marcy whose primary focus was and still is Leanne, to the point of never having returned to work. Marcy, Glen and Leia enter into their reunion with this history. So while Marcy and Glen have a memory of their six year old daughter who they want back in a young adult form, Leia only sees in front of her two strangers. ... Written by Huggo

Intense, uncomfortable, creepy and sad
7 December 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was pretty good. Cynthia Nixon and Saoirse Ronan give strong, really raw performances here which is in part what keeps it so watchable. They play mother and daughter who have been separated for 18 years after 'Leanne' was kidnapped as a 4 year old and kept locked in a windowless basement. She is eventually reunited with her parents but of course doesn't remember them as well as having been psychologically damaged by her captor (the awesome Jason Isaacs).

I found the movie intense and absorbing as well as sad, uncomfortable and even creepy -especially the ending. It's a bit slow at times as character studies tend to be and I guess along the lines of 'Room' which has a similar scenario and plot of readjusting to an unknown world.

Leanne's story (or time with Ben her kidnapper) is brought to light slowly in ongoing flashbacks showing her at different ages in her room. Ben has of course been her world, her entire life for all of her formative years and she is not really capable of functioning without him, she is damaged. The story takes an interesting turn when her mother Cynthia locks her back in her childhood room and essentially trues to reprogram her. A true tragedy 11/22/15
