I have not seen the movie Captive yet, I am going to see it tonight before it leaves the theaters. I am asking all of you to do the same.
This movie was directed by a very close family friend Jerry Jameson. It is a true story based on the a book called The Unlikely Angel written by Ashley Smith, a young woman who was kidnapped and held hostage by her captor, Brian Nichols. Ashley Smith is played by Kate Mara and Brian Nichols is played by David Oyelowo (he won the academy award for best actor this year for playing Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma.
This movie has a great message, and I am hoping that we can support it before it is gone from the theaters.
Here are some links to the reviews for the movie, and I will write a review about it tomorrow. Please take the time to go and see this movie. There are too few of these movies made today that make it to theaters, so we need to support them when they come out. I will also be seeing War Room tomorrow , and will review that movie later this week.
Thank you so much for being here today.
