CAPTIVE is a thriller based on true events that occurred in Atlanta, Ga., on March 11, 2005. Brian Nichols (Oyelowo) breaks out of the courthouse jail and shoots 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 takes Ashley Smith (Mara), a single mother struggling with meth addiction, hostage in her own apartment. Over the course of her harrowing ordeal, Smith desperately uses a book she has been given, Rick Warren’s THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE, to reason with her captor — with surprising and unforeseen results.
