Eden (2012)

Directed by: Megan Griffiths
Country: USA

Plot: A young Korean-American girl, abducted and forced into prostitution by domestic human traffickers, joins forces with her captors in a desperate plea to survive.
Review: “Eden” offers a basic and drab story about the kidnap of a 18 year-old girl by a prostitution organization linked to a high ranked police officer. The strategy to escape adopted by this girl was based on the simple thought: “if you can’t beat them, join them”. Looking like a sort of B movie, what stood out at the end was a dreadful story in addition with an almost complete absence of aesthetic rigor in the image composition. Despite of the efforts made to turn “Eden” in a realistic and thrilling tale, the truth is that its goals weren't achieved, resulting in a totally forgettable movie.
Relevant awards: Best actress (Seattle).
