Great drama in this movie with a big plot twist at the end. Great imagery, well chosen cast with a strong performance by Viggo Mortensen in particular. Worth watching.

Up to the moment tale with the incomparable Naomi Watts; taut, tough drama about the slavery and human trafficking going on right now. Not to be missed.
