CAPTIVE, based on a miraculous true story that drew the attention of the entire nation, is a thrilling drama about the spiritual collision of two broken lives. When Brian Nichols—on the run as the subject of a city wide manhunt and desperate to make contact with his newborn son—takes recovering meth addict Ashley Smith hostage in her own apartment, she turns for guidance to Rick Warren’s best-selling inspirational book, The Purpose Driven Life. While reading aloud, Ashley and her would-be killer each face crossroads where despair and death intersect hope.
What follows is a story that is gripping, contemplative, often cringing and very satisfying. From fear to redemption, but the question is, who’s being redeemed. Uplifting, positive and inspiring.
