I walked into this one mostly unaware of the plot. In all, the movie is good. If you like dramas, especially those based on true events, than this should be on your must see list.
I enjoyed how time is taken to present the main characters and get you attached to them. The little details like pouring soda on the battery wires to get the car running, are what make this move relatable. Neither character is perfect and its their broken states that help them heal each other.
So by itself, the movie gets a thumbs up review from me. What bothered me is the “true life” aspect of things. It’s mentioned in the movie that there is a $65K reward for anyone helping them capture the convict. It isn’t said, but I would assume the woman who is held captive and helps the police catch him, is then given this reward. This same woman has now written a book and made a movie. She sure did make out pretty good on this tragedy, huh?
It does sound like she is using her experience to help others, so in that aspect I applaud her and I hope she is able to do so.
