#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Seventeen years after she was abducted by a stranger named Benjamin McKay (Jason Isaacs), twenty-three-year-old Leanne Dargon (Saoirse Ronan), who has been in his captivity all this time, is discovered, and eventually reunited with her biological parents, Marcy (Cynthia Nixon) and Glen Dargon (David Warshofsky), while Ben is now in prison charged with her kidnapping. Ben was able to hide her locked in his basement all of this time, telling her that he saved her from world destruction, which she would have no reason not to believe. Leanne has no true recollection of her time before Ben, who renamed her “Leia”, and thus is the only family she has ever known. Over those seventeen years, Marcy and Glen dealt with the abduction in different ways, Marcy, whose primary focus was and still is Leanne, to the point of never having returned to work. Marcy, Glen, and Leia enter into their reunion with this history. So while Marcy and Glen have a memory of their six-year-old daughter who they want back in a young adult form, Leia only sees in front of her two strangers. Their parent/offspring relationship is thus formal and strained at best. But it takes a turn when Marcy discovers just how much of an attachment Leia still has to Ben, who Marcy only sees as the man who destroyed their family. Marcy goes to extreme measures to get back the “Leanne” she so desperately wants, at the possible expense of everything else in her life.
Plot: A young woman is returned home to her biological parents after living with her abductor for 17 years.

Lack of storytelling
There are some interesting ideas in this movie sadly they were not implemented…
“Stockholm, Pennsylvania” a young woman kidnapped at 4 and kept in a basement for 18 years is reunited with the parents she doesn’t remember,the child-kidnapping genre usually it focuses on the victim and the abductor and ends when the subject is found.This film had a more original spin and focused on the after math.I give the film points for originality, one usually does not see this part we only see the victim’s arms wrapped around their parents and the credits start to roll. Leia is deeply attached to the mild-mannered end-of-days cultist (Jason Isaacs, in a very small role) who kidnapped her and cut her off from the outside world. But that enforced seclusion also means that at 22 she’s facing the childhood challenges and embarrassments of learning how to operate in the adult world.all this sounds like a filmmaker’s dream protect.
Sadly it takes a turn we put ourselves in the shoes of the mother although her intentions are good, she becomes extremely obsessive to get her daughter back to the point that her actions are not so different from the kidnapper,that’s when the film loses me,it becomes unrealistic, it is an obsession to achieve her daughters love at all costs.
Strong performances from Saoirse Ronan and Cynthia Nixon, they manage to get the high points of the movie,I leaned more to Emma Donaghue’s compelling 2010 novel Room, which developed far more bracing and psychologically nuanced drama out of a similar scenario of shut-ins readjusting to an unknown world.
Intense, uncomfortable, creepy and sad
This was pretty good. Cynthia Nixon and Saoirse Ronan give strong, really raw performances here which is in part what keeps it so watchable. They play mother and daughter who have been separated for 18 years after ‘Leanne’ was kidnapped as a 4 year old and kept locked in a windowless basement. She is eventually reunited with her parents but of course doesn’t remember them as well as having been psychologically damaged by her captor (the awesome Jason Isaacs).
I found the movie intense and absorbing as well as sad, uncomfortable and even creepy -especially the ending. It’s a bit slow at times as character studies tend to be and I guess along the lines of ‘Room’ which has a similar scenario and plot of readjusting to an unknown world.
Leanne’s story (or time with Ben her kidnapper) is brought to light slowly in ongoing flashbacks showing her at different ages in her room. Ben has of course been her world, her entire life for all of her formative years and she is not really capable of functioning without him, she is damaged. The story takes an interesting turn when her mother Cynthia locks her back in her childhood room and essentially trues to reprogram her. A true tragedy 11/22/15
