Giveaway: Captive DVD #CaptiveMovie #FlyBy

“A Powerful Story of Faith Over Fear.” - Dick Rolfe, CEO, Dove Foundation

Based on a miraculous story about the power of faith, Captive is an "amazing, inspiring" drama about the spiritual collision of two lost souls, Brian Nichols (Golden Globe Nominee David Oyelowo), on the run from police and desperate to make contact with his newborn son, takes recently widowed mother Ashley Smith (Kata Mara) hostage in her own apartment.  Fearing for her life and desperately hoping to see her daughter again, she turns to Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life for guidance. Ashley and her captor face a crossroads where they discover hope and light in the midst of despair in the moving film that Dick Rolfe, CEO, Dove Foundation hailed as "powerful."

Living in metro Atlanta, I vividly remember the day this event happened.  I sat glued to my living room tv as the events played out live.  Brian Nichols, on trial for rape, escaped from a deputy in the Fulton County courthouse downtown.   He killed several people, including the judge presiding over his trial. Local news ran on tv all day, as the police desperately tried to find Nichols.  I remember thinking he was surely out of state by the end of the day - why on earth would he still be in the metro area, right? Well, everyone was surprised the next morning, when he was found in Duluth, GA. (only about 15 miles from us).  As the story of the evening unfolded, and we learned about the girl he held hostage for hours in her apartment, it became obvious that it was a miracle she was still alive!  This story stayed with me for years. I read Ashley Smith's book several years ago, and now I've seen this movie.   It is definitely not for children - it is very intense and has content that is for adults only. When I got this DVD in the mail and realized what it was about; I was not sure how I'd feel watching it, it brought back that day and how scary and sad it was.  Afterwards, I was glad I did.  It's inspiring and has a good message.   ~ Aimee
