Captive – The true-story of Ashley Smith, the Atlanta hostage hero.
Captive is based on the true events that occurred in Atlanta, Ga., on March 11, 2005. Brian Nichols, who will be played by David Oyelowo, broke out of a courthouse jail and shot dead the judge assigned to his case as well as a court reporter, sheriff’s deputy and FBI officer. While eluding a statewide manhunt, Nichols took Ashley Smith (Kate Mara), a single mother struggling with meth addiction, hostage in her own apartment.
Over the course of her ordeal, Smith used a book she had been given, Rick Warren‘s The Purpose Driven Life, to reason with her captor, with surprising results.
