On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
148/214 Max Braden Kline isn't convincing as a gruff Texas lawman. For a similar theme done far better, pick Gone, Baby, Gone.

Digg Button  
Trade is a complex-sounding film that deals with the issue of human trafficking. Every year, millions of people are unwillingly trafficked across international borders. This is not a social issue that gets a great deal of attention in North America, but perhaps it should.

Kevin Kline plays a Texas cop who learns that he may have had a daughter who was trafficked a long time ago. He sets out to investigate his own case, and while working he meets a young boy from Mexico City whose 13-year-old sister has been kidnapped. As they work to save her, the sister befriends Jovovich, a young Russian woman who thought she had been coming to the United States to work as a nanny, but instead is enslaved in Mexico.

Trade is likely to be a polarizing, controversial picture, particularly due to the presence of violent sexual acts involving minors. It's a bold choice for Kevin Kline in a project that was scripted by the writer of the well-received The Motorcycle Diaries. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
