A truly unique story and captivating characters are the key.
24 July 2019 | by banjorollSee all my reviews

I have never seen the subject of human trafficking dealt with in this manner. Market Value brings a truly unique story and vision to life through grounded and captivating characters. Wendell Etherly has done an outstanding job painting a picture that is not only believable but frightening. The love created in this modern family drama coupled with the consequences Audrey's choice brings to the world makes this gem of an indie well worth the watch. Stand out performances by the conflicted and loving partner Audrey, the private investigator and the litigator really take this one of a kind drama to another level. I was truly moved by the film.
