Powerful film - must see
14 August 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Just saw this - wow! David Oyelowo and Kate Mara deliver powerful and nuanced performances that stayed with me long after the movie had ended. We are taken inside a terrifying situation, based on a true story - a woman, Ashley Smith, a recovering meth addict, is taken hostage in her own home by Brian Nichols, who is on the run, having killed several people already. What will he do to her? Will she get away? But there is so much more to it. Somehow I found myself caring also about this killer. Weirdly, in this midst of this tense situation, they develop a human connection that drew me in. There are surprising odd details - she makes him pancakes, he helps by putting up a mirror. Two broken lives, a terrible situation, yet somehow this is a hopeful film. Absolutely compelling.
