I'm not sure why the caption under the movie reads based on the inspiring true story. There was very little in this movie to inspire anyone. I'm glad this woman made it out alive and the man was captured, but the movie failed to show the reasons he spared her or what she did to inspire him not to. I thought perhaps during her ordeal she would have spoken words of faith to him, said something to awaken him, confronted him or otherwise faced down the demons within him. Perhaps she did but the film doesn't show it. I kept waiting for something inspiring to happen. It never did. Instead, she said little and it was just a long drawn out waiting game as to what he was going to do to escape or possibly kill her too. The inclusion of the book, "The Purpose Driven Life" was unnecessary to the story as she didn't read it or understand it and simply used it as a distraction for the killer. The fact she got sober because of this is the best part of the story. I feel the suspect came to realize he was on the wrong path on his own without her input. Perhaps the birth of his son was what inspired him, but we are left with many unanswered questions. With so much suffering going on in the world, I didn't find this movie to be inspiring at all but rather indulging the author and woman at the center of the story. If you are looking for inspiration, skip this movie.
