If you are in the mood for a movie that will captivate you from the beginning then this is it. I can't imagine being in a place where I have lost everything over an addiction.  By everything I mean everything - your husband, your child, your home.  Having to start over, but not wanting to give up that which got you to the point of having to start over.  As she picks up the pieces to try and start over, and is taken captive - only then does her life truly change.  This movie reminded me that we all have purpose, even if we can't clearly see what that purpose might be now.  It reminds me of times we find our self in situations we don't necessarily want to be in, but yet find some wisdom or grow because of that experience. Knowing that this movie was based on a true story, made it that much more eye opening.  It was neat to see how what she thought was trash, ended up being something she would read to her captor that might have softened his heart.

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 (Kate 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."
