When it's over, Trade is the type of movie that I know even before I see it that it'll make me sad, but yet, I watch it anyways and I'm literally glued to the screen. The realism is disturbing and the sheer unfortunate fates the characters suffer make this movie compelling. The story's about sex trafficking and it follows the abduction of a 13 year old Mexican girl who is to be sold via internet by the highest bidder. The victum's brother enlists the aid of a Texas cop, played by Kevin Kline, to save his sister before she is sold. No matter how the story ends, which I won't say for those who might watch it, the movie, to me, really is about loss. This movie's similar to the miniseries Human Tafficking starring Donald Sutherland and Mira Sorvino.
My rating: 4 out of 5
