The Freedom of Silence is an interesting attempt to make a futuristic film predicting what could happen, and has in many countries. The torture scenes are haunting. The back story is told in flashbacks as you learn about Zach, his beliefs, his family, his house church and his friends. The biggest mystery is what causes him to end up in prison.
While the blogger appreciates the message in the film, there were points when the blogger was tempted to just turn it off and stop watching. Not to mention how glad the blogger was for only paid half price for the movie. It is not worth more than that.
This is NOT a family film. Adults and older teens only.
Out of five stars, this film is a two and half.
