DVD Review and Giveaway: Captive

Captive is based on a powerful true story that changed the life of Ashley Smith
(played by Kate Mara) forever. On March 12, 2005, Brian Nichols (played by David
 Oyelowo), an escaped convict who already killed 4 people, held Ashley hostage
in her own apartment for 7 hours. Ashley, a widowed mother who's a meth addict,
lost custody of her daughter, Paige. When faced with the life & death situation as
a captive, Ashley, by the grace of God, ironically broke free from her drug addiction
that kept her captive for years. Unexpected miracles unfolded as hours ticked away.
When she read The Purpose Driven Life out loud, God softened Brian's heart and
made him think about his life's purpose. Brian thought of his newborn son.
Difficult decisions had to be made.

I really enjoyed this gripping film from beginning to end. Excellent performances!
Two broken people encountered one amazing God! This is a remarkable story of
redemption, faith, hope, transformation, choices, and purpose. Nobody is beyond
God's saving grace! I highly recommend this DVD!
