Very important to watch
3 June 2019 | by embracing_silenceSee all my reviews

I feel like this is a movie that all women should watch. It is a real thing, getting tricked into a business deal and then getting kidnapped. It doesn't necessarily have to be photography or anything sexual, it could happen to anyone. I am very impressed with Frida for deciding to tell her story, and to act in a movie based on it. You can tell in most of her scenes that she isn't acting, she is reliving the stress and fear. She doesn't try to look pretty while crying. This is a movie, so the story is different than what actually happened to her. Her personal story, she said she doesn't remember a lot of it, because of being so drugged up all the time. This is where all the embellishments in the movie come in. It wouldn't be a movie if it only showed what she could remember. They created a new character with a different life. This isn't a bad thing, but viewers need to be aware that, of course, things were added in and changed. It doesn't make the story any less real. She made this movie to bring awareness about sex trafficking, not to be about her. If you brush it off as something that could never happen, you are part of the problem.
