MV5BNzAxNTg3NTUzN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTMwMDcwOQ@@._V1_SX214_AL_A young Korean-American girl, abducted and forced into prostitution by domestic human traffickers, joins forces with her captors in a desperate plea to survive. (IMDb)

To cut to the chase, this is a really heavy movie. Oof. But I hard Jamie Chung was in it so I really wanted to watch it. Her performance alone in this movie is worth the watch. She’s wonderful. The character changes quickly and drastically and she does it so well. Matt O’Leary also does a nice job as Vaughan, one of the higher ups at the organization. I was a little nervous going in with how brutal this movie was going to be, since some of these true story movies can get almost too graphic. Writer/Director Megan Griffiths takes the opposite route, and barely shows you anything, leaving the audience to imagine what these girls had to deal with. This, I think, is actually more affecting then showing six different brutal rape scenes. Overall, this is great. It’s well acted, well paced, and leaves a haunting impression.

7.5/10
