2015 has certainly been the year of the faith-based film! Recently War Room was the #1 movie in America. Woodlawn the true story of how God brought about racial reconciliation during integration in Birmingham Alabama will be showing in theaters across the nation in October. And the new film Captive starring David Oyelowo and Kate Mara premieres nationally today (9/18). You may remember the news story that this film is based on (from 2005) involving a hostage situation in Atlanta where a woman is kidnapped by an escaped convict for several hours. Through their ordeal both find forgiveness through faith.
Rated PG-13 for mature thematic elements. 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 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.
