Sex trafficking Trade trailer online

Trade.jpgBack in December of 2006 I wrote about Trade, a film starring Kevin Kline that looked into the illegal and terrifying trade in human beings for sex. Now there's a trailer online for it and it's looking very powerful.

Kevin Kline heads up the cast for the film that tells the story of Adriana, a 13-year-old girl from Mexico City who is kidnapping by sex traffickers. Her 17-year-old brother, Jorge sets out to save her. While Adriana finds a friend amongst the other kidnapped girls, Jorge meets Ray, a Texas cop who has lost his own family to sex trafficking. Together they set out to find her.

A powerful and moving trailer, so what will the rest of the film be like? I'm looking forward to Trade which looks like it might be much larger in scale as the previous sex trafficking film I saw called Holly (Filmstalker review).

You can see the trailer over at Apple Trailers [QT:M:iPod] through JoBlo.

Holly was a terribly moving film and one that I really did enjoy. Perhaps Trade will hit the mark as hard. It is definitely a tale that needs to be told as much as possible.



I saw this trailer yesterday and the first thing that came to mind was that I'd seen this before. It has really strong vibes of the 2005 mini series "Human Trafficking" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0461872/)
