The wonderful Taraji P. Henson portrays Rubin. After her ex-husband takes their son for a week long vacation, Rubin becomes alarmed when they seem to fall off the face of the earth. Soon, it is discovered that the pair have fled the country. There seems to be little chance of Rubin even finding her son, much less bringing him home again--and, as you might expect, this is devastating for Rubin and her family. In a grounded story of mother love and perseverance, the boy is located and Rubin is determined that he should be brought home even if that brands her an international criminal. The film adds a couple of unnecessary thriller elements to the concluding chapter for dramatic purposes, but never loses sight of its true strength--it has created real characters that you actually care about!
Henson, as I mentioned, is perfect.Read more ›
The drama and dialouge aspect of the film was less than most films of this type, most likely because it kept to the real tale and didn't take as many liberties with dramatization other than the anachronism about Bill Clinton negotiating the release of the journalists. Good heart warming film, but not a nail biter.
They could have made this movie longer because there was so much more to tell this story, if it had been an eight hour movie it would have been just as engaging. Well done with the time span they had.
