Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict - the collaborators and dissidents.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Sci-Fi Thriller - While technically a science fiction thriller, this leans more toward drama, with its alien invasion element treated more as an afterthought to the main concern, which is its political allegory. As such, the audience most likely to enjoy are older adults. Ashton Sanders and John Goodman get the most screen time while other familiar faces such as Vera Farmiga have very small roles. Language, violence, drug use, and sexual content make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average The thinking behind "Captive State" is admirable. The execution is far from that. Here is a thriller about an alien invasion that mostly avoids mass destruction and firefights. Appearances from aliens are sparse... Thrills of almost any kind, on the other hand, are completely absent.
