Suspenseful crime drama that I enjoyed

I started watching this with no expectation, and after about 30 minutes I was really engrossed in the story. Whilst there were some parts that suffered from acting that wasn't so great, overall I thought this was done really well and was suspenseful. What a truly horrific person to have done those crimes and what an incredibly strong and clever woman to have gone through all that she did.

Amazing story!

Ok sometimes Lifetime Movie Network movies aren't the greatest, BUT, I continue to watch them because occasionally they will hit one out of the park, and this is a perfect example. This is a true story, not exaggerated or dramatized, the real deal on what really happened and Lisa herself telling in her own words what happened here and there was a perfect touch. Amazing but horrific story turned into a great movie! & for Lisa, I am so happy Lifetime got this right as she is an amazing woman and Lifetime captured that perfectly.

An Amazing Woman Who Was So Much Better Than Her Surroundings

This is a made for tv movie about the abduction of a young girl and her amazing ability to keep cool. This is based on a true story. Lisa McVey lives a life that is overflowing with adversity but she has a strength that keeps her hopeful for her and her younger sister. While she lives with her grandmother and her sister is living with her mother, she is being sexual abused by her grandmother's live in boyfriend. She works at a small doughnut shop and even the money she makes is being taken away by her grandmother's boyfriend. Her mother and grandmother both know what is going on but seem to be indifferent to the situation. After leaving the doughnut shop after a late shift, she is abducted, raped and taken to her rapist's home. There he continues to abuse her but she does her best to play along and begins to manipulate his emotions. He finally reaches a point where he is ready to dispose of her but she manages to convince him to spare her life. In the long run, this will be the saving grace in all aspects of her life and his downfall. This is a great story. Kudos to McVey. She did an amazing job and most likely saved a lot of lives in the long run. You know, they say that you never know your own strength until strength is your only option. This is a testament to that. The quality of this seems like it may have been a Lifetime movie. I don't know for sure but I don't have a problem with Lifetime movies so that's not an issue for me. The lead actress did a great job in my opinion. I think that movies based in reality have a stronger impact on me. I appreciate the small miracles that are happening all around us on a daily basis yet we never knew they were there. It is a great story. The script and quality are made for tv so this isn't an epic film with a huge budget. It was worth watching for me though.
