Eight years after the disappearance of Cassandra, some disturbing incidents seem to indicate that she's still alive. Police, parents and Cassandra herself, will try to unravel the mystery of her disappearance.
In their new overseas house, an American family soon finds themselves caught in the middle of a coup, and they frantically look for a safe escape from an environment where foreigners are being immediately executed.
Captures a generational moment - young people on the cusp of truly growing up, tiring of their reflexive cynicism, each in their own ways struggling to connect and define what it means to love and be loved.
A desperate American couple discovers all is not what it seems when they uncover a high-stakes underground scam while traveling abroad. To expose the truth and get back to the U.S., they must risk their lives to save their daughter.
On March 11, 2005, Brian Nichols escapes from the Fulton County courthouse in Atlanta, during his trial involving a rape case. In the process of the escape he murders the judge presiding over his trial, Rowland Barnes, as well as court reporter Julie Brandau. He also shoots Sergeant Hoyt Teasley while escaping from the courthouse, and then later kills ICE Special Agent David G. Wilhelm, who was off-duty at his home. Nichols becomes the subject of a citywide manhunt. His frantic escape brings him to the apartment of Ashley Smith, a single mother and recovering methamphetamine addict, whom he holds hostage. Smith gets through the time by being inspired by Rick Warren's best-selling book The Purpose Driven Life while Nichols searches for redemption. As she reads aloud, Smith and her would-be killer come to a crossroads..

Great performances by David Oyelowo and Kate Mara. The two created good chemistry on the screen.
David Oyelow is a fine actor. I was really drawn in at watching him play Nicols. It was very intriguing watching him showcase the many levels of the character his is performing
And Kate Mara did a fantastic job as a supporting actor. I like how she handle the material. Seemed more interesting in going for the realism of the situation without being over dramatic.
But my personal favorite performance in captive goes to Micheal k Williams, however. It's not the first time he played a man on the right side of the law, but Omar from the Wire gave his most believable performance as the head cop Jon Chestnut hunting down Brian Nichols.
It was a compelling story about a woman who literately seemed scared straight into cleaning herself up from an addiction while being captured by Brian Nicols for 7 hours.
It's all about watching two good actors connect with each other on the big screen and it makes for a wonderful experience
