Wow. Watching Trafficked was quite the emotional experience! Due to the difficult subject matter, I expected this drama to be stirring, but was still surprised by the effect it had on me. Based on real-life events, it paints a clear picture of this modern slave industry.
Sex-trafficking is a wide-spread and well-known horror, but this movie makes it all the more real for me. Without being blatantly graphic or garish, it communicates how repulsive traffickers are and the avenues they are willing to take to fill their pockets. No matter the expense to others.
Seriously, I feel as if I held my breath through much of this movie. It is easy to empathize and sympathize with nearly every character. I imagined being in the shoes of the parents, the investigators, and the impulsive, unsuspecting young girls—especially Allison’s. It’s sad and maddening to know that countless families suffer as the Riley family does in this story.
Despite not being a big box-office film, the acting is surprisingly strong. The actors portray believable characters and execute convincing performances. Sophie Bolen, the actress playing Allison, does an exceptional job, as does Dean Cain, playing Private Investigator John Belton. The ‘bad guys’ gave strong performances of their own.
Trafficked is gritty, emotional, and eye-opening, bringing a greater awareness about sex-trafficking.
* This movie contains a few curse words.
