TV Movie | TV-14 | | Biography, Crime, Drama
A single mother who becomes the first victim of kidnapper Ariel Castro finds herself trapped in his home for 11 years, where she eventually becomes a friend and sister to two other women who are taken captive by Castro.
When offered to play the part of Ariel Castro, Raymond Cruz's wife originally told him not to take the offer because of how sick Castro was. After reading the script, his wife had a change of heart and urged him to take the role because if he didn't "play the devil", then nobody would care about the girls.
At the start of the movie, the main character is clearly longsighted, as her spectacles have strong convex lenses fitted. The bad guy breaks these glasses early on and soon after she is rescued she is presented with a replacement pair, which she says bring the world back in focus for her at last. But the lenses are obviously just clear glass from then until the end of the film.
