Pastor and best-selling authors says “‘CAPTIVE’ will captivate you with the awesome power of the second chance.”

In theaters September 18, 2015 and telling the incredible story based on true events of how one book forever changed a life, “CAPTIVE” will have an immersive social media and online campaign launching today allowing fans to #FollowYourPurpose

In 2005, Ashley Smith was trying desperately to pick up the pieces of her broken life. Widowed at a young age and at a crossroads both personally and spiritually, God stepped in and changed her life forever during a harrowing encounter with a runaway fugitive. Through Rick Warren’s No. 1 best-selling book, “The Purpose Driven Life,” Smith found her way back to her faith.

A gripping national news story, Smith’s tale of being held hostage in her Atlanta apartment by fugitive Brian Nichols is now being told in Paramount Pictures’ film, “CAPTIVE,” which opens in theaters on September 18, 2015. Starring David Oyelowo (“SELMA”) and Kate Mara (“FANTASTIC FOUR,” “House of Cards”), the film shares not only the story of Smith and Nichols, but also the powerful message found in “The Purpose Driven Life.”
