“The Captive” movie quotes follow the clues as the disappearance of a young girl is investigated. The Canadian thriller was directed by Atom Egoyan using a screenplay he co-wrote with David Fraser. After competing at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, “The Captive” opened theatrically on December 12, 2014.

In “The Captive,” Cassandra (portrayed by Peyton Kennedy and Alexia Fast) and father Matthew (Ryan Reynolds) take a routine trip to a pie shop for some dessert and while Matthew enters the store alone, while he is shopping, Cassandra disappears. Investigators (including Rosario Dawson and Scott Speedman) look into the disappearance, but find more questions rather than answers, especially when they discover that someone has been watching the family using hidden cameras.

Years pass and the disappearance of their daughter causes Matthew and Tina (Mireille Enos) to grow apart but despite the time since the disappearance, the case receives new interest and is reopened. When they uncover clues that Cassandra may be alive, the hunt to find her and who is responsible for her disappearance receives new life.

“The Captive” opens alongside other great films including "Life Partners," "Comet," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," "Horrible Bosses 2, "Penguins of Madagascar," "Dumb and Dumber To," "Foxcatcher," "Beyond the Lights," "The Homesman," "Interstellar," "The Theory of Everything," "Nightcrawler," "Big Hero 6," "Before I Go to Sleep," and "Horns.”

Mika: “I have a plan. A few minutes, that’s all you’ll have to give them.”
Cass: “Will I get to talk to them?”
Mika: “Yes”
Cass: “Does my dad get to talk to me?”
Mika: “Yes, Cass, he does, and we’ll be listening. Of course, I was thinking some kind of mic, a hidden microphone.”
Cass: “What are you so worried about? I have no idea where I am. How would he ever find me? I don’t even know your name.”
Mika: “Not worth it, or else…”
Cass: “You’ll kill him. Wouldn’t it just be easier to kill me, now that I’m all grown up, now that you’ve lost interest? I can’t be that valuable doing what I’m doing.”
Mika: “Oh, you’re so valuable, Cassandra, doing exactly what you’re doing.”

Cassandra and Mika talk about the terms of her contacting her father. While she questions what her value is now that she’s grown, Mika reinforces that regardless of age, she is valued and needs to stick to the plan.
