Really sold me on the need to stop human trafficking
11 April 2016 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

This movie was disturbing and uncomfortable.

Sold centers around a 12 year old girl who ends up owing a lot of money and is sold into the life of prostitution in order to pay it back.

what was most disturbing was not what was said, but what was seen on the screen. The ease these people had taking away a child's innocent for money. The large amount of children in the Brothels. The film shows these people's comfort in the life which made me so very uncomfortable.

David Arquette and Gillian Anderson have very small roles as the white faces attempting to close down the brothel, and I must say, they were a sight for very sore eyes as it was hard to stomach a child living her life in this place.

This movie is not met to entertain at all, it is purely educational. They lay down all the facts and don't sugar coat or romance it at all.

It was a hard watch but it was worth it.
