On the weekends my husband and I like to watch movies. We don’t go out all that often so, more times than not, we wait for those blockbuster hits to get to Redbox or Family Video (yes there are still movie rental places). I like a wide variety of movies, but my favorite are those that are based off true events. I like seeing the updates at the end. Sometimes they make me very happy to read and other times I get upset with how life turned out for some people. So when I was asked if I wanted to review the movie Captive, I knew right away it was a big fat yes. Captive is based on an inspiring true story.

Based on a miraculous true story about the power of faith, Captive is an “amazing, inspiring” drama about the spiritual collision of two lost souls. Brian Nichols, on the run from police and desperate to make contact with his newborn son, takes recently widowed mother Ashley Smith 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 has hailed as “powerful”.
I really enjoyed the movie. I felt that they did a really great job portraying the events of Ashley Smith being taken hostage and the roadblocks that popped up along the way. In case you are like me and had never heard of this story before, I don’t want to give too much away. However, Captive is an amazing story of faith and hope and one that I think everyone should take the time to watch.
