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.

After one full day of shooting, one thing is for certain: Madelaine Hoptry and Tim Brosnan are absolutely the best actors for the roles of Brooklyn and Simon.

Not only do they look like the father and daughter we’d imagined, they are excellent screen actors. Each offered smart, nuanced performances today…spanning the entire first half of the film.

Maddi and Tim came to TAKEN IN as experienced stage actors with few if any screen acting credits.

Indeed, their “big screen debut” will impress you.
