What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Captive State is a sci-fi action movie about humanity's response to an alien invasion. Ten years after an alien race conquered Earth, the population has been split up into two groups: those who collaborate with their occupiers and those who want to resist. Although the aliens attempted to destroy anyone who tried to stop them when they arrived, a secret underground group called Phoenix is forming and plotting to take back the planet. This group recruits Gabriel (Ashton Sanders), a young Chicago native whose father was killed by the aliens, to be the spark they need to light a revolution. John Goodman and Vera Farmiga co-star. Expect lots of sci-fi violence, including torture, as well as swearing, sexy stuff, and drug references.
