Movie Info

Monrovia, 1990: An aggressive civil war has escalated, threatening many lives, including a group of native Liberian missionaries and their leader. Now they must be willing to give up all that they have, to make a desperate cross-country trip, with little chance of survival, in order to protect one of their own. FREETOWN is the powerful true story of faith, survival, and freedom. (C) Purdie

Critic Reviews for Freetown

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

Although suffused with welcome touches of sly humor, the proceedings never gather the necessary dramatic momentum.

May 30, 2015 | Full Review…

The film, based on true events, feels dramatic and thrilling at moments. Other times, its heavy-handed proselytizing mars the proceedings.

March 7, 2017 | Full Review…

In total, Freetown delivers a powerful message despite limited means, and marks another success for an emerging filmmaker.

November 5, 2015 | Full Review…

The inexperienced cast is earnest but wooden, easily upstaged by the stark beauty of the Ghanaian countryside where the movie was filmed.

May 30, 2015 | Rating: 2/5

A compelling story with fascinating characters, undone by a script that does the opposite of what its real-life Liberian missionaries would do: it doesn't take any chances.

April 28, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's a satisfying surprise indeed to find a "Mormon movie" willing to confront the church's legacy of racism head-on.
