Captive is a portrayal of difficult realities in our world. This movie is based on a true story of an escaped convict and a drug user. Captive shows how two damaged lives come together and experience God's grace to save them each in their own way.
The overall message is of faith, redemption, and forgiveness. The harsh realities of drugs, rape, and murder presented in the film may not be appropriate for children of 13 years old as the PG-13 rating would suggest. I would highly recommend reviewing the movie before allowing your child to see it.
About the movie:
Based on a miraculous story about the power of faith, Captive is an "amazing, inspiring" drama about the spiritual collision of two lost souls, Brian Nichols (Golden Globe Nominee David Oyelowo), on the run from police and desperate to make contact with his newborn son, takes recently widowed mother Ashley Smith (Kata Mara) hostage in her own apartment. Fearing for her life and desperately hoping to see her daughter again, she turns to Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life for guidance. Ashley and her captor face a crossroads where they discover hope and light in the midst of despair in the moving film that Dick Rolfe, CEO, Dove Foundation hailed as "powerful."
