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.

Simon's Story

Tim Brosnan ("Simon") got to see some of his work tonight in the edit suite...he seemed pleased with it.

It's hard to watch yourself act on camera. Many actors refuse to do so, and I think Tim is one of those who prefer not to.

But I am insistent. Tim has good taste. It's helpful to hear what he thinks.

When I see the film now, it always strikes me how much the story is Simon's. That was something we were never quite sure of when we were writing, rehearsing and shooting. But the story wins. It's Simon's tale.
