Plot: Captive is a true story based 2015 upcoming American drama thriller movie directed by Jerry Jameson and written by Brian Bird and Reinhard Denke. The story start with single mother struggling with drug addiction is taken hostage in her own apartment by a criminal man after breaking out of jail and murdering the judge assigned to his case.
The movie Captive is based on a true story that drew the attention of the entire nation by the activity of Ashley Smith and Brian Nichols. Ashley Smith being taken hostage by Brian in her own apartment, Ashley read the Rick Warren’s inspirational book, The Purpose Driven Life, for guidance. In reading from the book, Ashley not only finds purpose in her own life, but helps Brian find a more peaceful resolution to a harrowing situation.
The movie story is so well on so many levels. It gave enough hope through faith, without alienating itself from a wider audience. I am also inspired by the story of these two characters (Ashley and Brian).
