Angus Macfadyen (Lucas Blackstone-the kidnapper) and Haylie Duff (Carrie-the wife) did a great job on thier acting. I dont know if this is a true story or not-at the end it did feel like it might have been. I did not watch "behind the scenes or Actor interviews) to find out more about this movie.
It is hard for a wife or husband to forgive infidelity. I truly only believe that it would be ALMOST impossiable to do that without the Lord's help. I am speaking from being a wife myself and married for over 10 years.
This movie does show how HARD that forgiveness can be...even to forgive yourself of something you did can be ROUGH. This is a movie of forgiveness and Love. I wish the movie would have went a little more into the "forgive yourself" aspect but over all-we enjoyed watching it.
This movie does not "capture" you to the point where you cant get up and walk away but it does hold your interest and makes you think. I dont believe that any kids(under 12) would find this movie enjoyable-due to the fact it is kind of slow moving at points and the subject of infidality. It is a clean movie no sex in it--i did see cleavage on "carrie" for about a minute or so at the end of the movie--but it was not MAJOR or made really prominate in the frame(i dont think the cleavage was intentional--but who knows anymore. Final thoughts--it is a good movie and does cover a good subject..
I cried during the last part of this movie. It is emotional because such a situation is always a real possibility in the real world today. I found myself questioning my own since of forgiveness and compassion. (In a good way) Like could I be such a good person as the couple in the car. This is a heart gripping story, and after the movie I read the outcomes of the people involved, I was not aware this was based on true events, and learning that made this movie an even greater inspiration to me. Swearing, gore, and sex have no part in this movie. Gives a good spiritual message.
It was very good, it caught my daughter's attention we saw it together. She loved it. She is going through some problems and t e movie really helped her, in like taking things for granted. How forgiveness is a very important issue. She started going to church and my married daughter re-dedicated her life back to Christ.
