The true story of Patricia Hearst, a rich girl who was abducted by American revolutionaries in the 1970s. The time spent with her captors made her question her way of life and she joined forces with the cause that her abductors were fighting for.

I remember just being a kid but I loved history and I was absolutely enamored with this stuff. I've seen this movie a few times and Ving and Natasha (God rest your soul) were brilliant. Ving was overpowering in one of his early roles and Richardson kept her foreign accent in check and was great as Patty Hearst. I'll never forget being a young teen watching the real Patty Hearst on the news and became a pop culture icon hated and loved and doubted and believed , always a mystery to this day. Though this movie is from Patty's perspective, she was found guilty then pardoned or sentence converted. She later became an actress and I always had to watch her not for her acting abilities but just thinking what this women went through and there she is. Regardless of what we think she did go through SOMETHING bad, though we'll never know the truth and she did get out of prison because she was from one of the richest families in the US at the time. This story is so intriguing and like they say u can't make this up. You think you know but we'll NEVER know.
