I have a limited number of tickets to give away to a Silver Spring, Maryland screening on September 17, 2015 of “Captive,” based on the true story of Ashley Smith, who was held hostage by a murderer and read aloud to him from Rick Warren’s book, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For?. Smith has written her own book: Captive: The Untold Story of the Atlanta Hostage Hero. In the movie, she is played by Kate Mara, and her captor, a prison escapee who killed a judge and three law enforcement officers, is played by David Oyelowo.  This special screening is in connection with the Night of Purpose, a nationwide event with exclusive content.
