Story


A pick up truck pulls off the highway at a diner. Confident that his young daughter is safe in the back seat and promising to return with ice cream, the father slips out of his truck and into the diner. When he returns, she is gone.

The psychological thriller, The Captive examines how this kidnapping destroys the relationships among those involved. As the film teases out the complex threads weaving together the victim, her family, the predators and the investigators, the mystery of what happened to the child, during the eight years she was missing, is revealed.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..yet there are only so many hysterical, far-fetched plot turns you can accept before deciding that the real human tragedy which the film gives us early on..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out]
“..everyone here, it predictably emerges, is a captive to something - to anger, to shame, to their own unspeakable compulsions..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
