‘Abducted’ aka ‘The Broken’ a film we supplied the extras to and we finished earlier this year but I also have a feeling this film will be a nightmare for some parents. Filmed in the UK and USA we see in an attempt to rebuild his marriage after the death of his son, Matt Hollis (Mark Harris) decides to take his wife played by Anna Nightingale and six year old daughter Lara on a trip of a lifetime to LA, to escape the constant reminders of their loss. Shortly after their arrival Matt’s world is turned upside down when his wife is attacked in their holiday home, leaving her in a coma and their daughter LARA kidnapped by a child trafficking ring. Hunted by the police who mistakenly believe Matt has absconded with his daughter, he must evade capture and pursue the criminals responsible for Lara’s abduction. Realizing he only has a 72-hour window of opportunity if he ever wants to see his daughter alive again, he enlists the help of Syan an old forces buddy, Matt tears a path of bloody vengeance through the streets of LA on a collision course with Lara’s captors
In response to various articles, Roar Entertainment states “It is true that the film has some very tough subject matter, however any scenes relating to child abduction were researched in depth by Mark himself with backing from child abduction charity – SAVING INNOCENCE.
Yes, the film is ‘inspired’ by real life abduction cases, however the family in this film are not playing The McCanns and the characters in this film in no way portray victims of child abduction in a negative light.
Child Abduction is a real issue, and therefore should not be hidden from the public just because it is a hard subject matter. Roar Entertainment are proud of this film, and stick by the belief that this film will positively raise awareness around the major international issue of Child Abduction and Trafficking”
The film ‘Abducted’ is out on 17th March but for now enjoy the trailer.
