SOLD is a narrative, feature film adaptation of the globally acclaimed novel by Patricia McCormick. A one-night showing of this film is being hosted at Marcus Point Cinemas on May 19, 7:30pm if at least 60 $10 tickets are sold in advance.
Based on true stories, SOLD, is the story of Lakshmi who journeys from a pastoral, rural village in Nepal to a gritty brothel/prison called Happiness House in Kolkata, India.
Through one extraordinary girl’s story, SOLD illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, which affects millions of children around the globe every year. Globally the average age of a trafficked girl is thirteen, the same age as the girl in the film. SOLD is a call to action, and a testament to the power and resilience of the human spirit.
It is hoped that the film will inspire a global movement to address this crime domestically and internationally.
SOLD is directed by Academy and Emmy award-winner, Jeffrey D. Brown, Executive Produced by two time Academy Award winner, Emma Thompson, Produced by Jane Charles, Co-Produced by Katie Mustard and Written by Joseph Kwong and Jeffrey D. Brown.
