TAKEN IN is a handmade feature film about a man who must spend a weekend alone with his estranged teenage daughter at a roadside resort. It is here that Simon and Brooklyn must confront the issues that have driven them apart, and ultimately choose how they will move forward...together or alone.

TAKEN IN was written and directed by personal filmmaker, Chris White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family. The story (co-written with his wife Emily), was inspired by Chris’ theatre work with students at a therapeutic boarding school. The film is dedicated to his own teenage daughter, Gibson.

TAKEN IN was filmed at South of the Border, Dillon SC USA in the Spring of 2011.

Madelaine Hoptry plays "Brooklyn" in TAKEN IN.

Brooklyn is seventeen, and recently sent away to a therapeutic boarding school. She is mad at the world...but mostly at her father, Simon, who she must spend the weekend with.

Brooklyn's mom left the family years ago. Since then, she's done the best she can...raised mostly by nannies and housekeepers in the family's Buckhead (Atlanta, GA, USA) home, as her father travels for business...pretty much, all the time.
