I always find it interesting when I re-watch a film that I first saw years before and recognize an actor I’m familiar with I had no idea was in the film. It happens when a star is on the rise and I catch their notice when they find their breakout role.
Not so this time as I am already familiar with both of the starts of Paramount’s upcoming film Captive. The film stars David Oyelowo (Selma, Interstellar) and Kate Mara (House of Cards).
Captive, based on a true story that drew the attention of the entire nation, is the dramatic, thrilling, and spiritual journey of Ashley Smith and Brian Nichols. After being taken hostage by Brian in her own apartment, Ashley turns to 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.
Check out the trailer below. The film will be released by Paramount Pictures in theatres on September 18th, 2015.
