'Her Stolen Past'
(Shanice Banton, Darlene Cooke, Joel Gagne, Barbara Eve Harris, et al / DVD / TV-PG / 2018 / Lionsgate Films)
Overview: Murder, a kidnapping, and deadly secrets intertwine when 'Her Stolen Past' arrives on DVD October 9th from Lionsgate.
DVD Verdict: In truth, just recently I've been getting more and more into these Lifetime movies. The Hallmark Channel ones are all love and will they won't-they (but they always do, of course), whereas the Lifetime movies are all about revenge (and usually by women).
Based on the novel of the same name by best-selling author Lynette Eason, this suspenseful thriller follows a young woman trying to uncover the connection between her mother’s murder and a kidnapped baby’s birth certificate hidden in her mother’s house.
What was her parents’ connection to the missing little girl, and could her mother’s murder somehow be connected? Determined to unravel the mystery, Sonya hires attractive detective Brandon Hayes to help her investigate — but she doesn’t realize how deadly the answers she’s looking for will be.
Based on Lynette Eason’s Harlequin Love Inspired suspense novel Her Stolen Past, when it soon becomes clear that someone will stop at nothing to prevent her from discovering the truth and when that happens, well, watch out world!
A smash hit for Lifetime Movie Network, 'Her Stolen Past' is quite an original story, not heard all that often in real life, so in that respect this was rather refreshing.
Sure, the story itself is heartbreaking, but come the end you are fully on her side; no matter what she had to do inbetween! Well acted by Shanice Banton as the lady in question, Sonya, believe me when I say that just when you think you've seen everything on screen, along comes a movie like this that makes you rethink some things. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
