Rapt: Film Review
The film lacks star power but shrewdly promoted and with good word of mouth it could pay off handsomely at the box office.
PARIS -- Lucas Belvaux's Rapt is two movies, both excellent, for the price of one. On the one hand, it's a social-political thriller of the kind made familiar by Costa-Gavras. On the other, it's a psychological study of a creature of power during and after his seizure by ransom-hunters, and the effects of the kidnap on those close and not so close to him. It lacks star power but shrewdly promoted and with good word of mouth it could pay off handsomely at the boxoffice.
