SOLD humanizes the issue of child trafficking. By pulling us into the world of one child who is trafficked, the film provides insight into the horrors children experience but also illustrates the resilience they have to overcome such horrible situations.Emily Pasnak-Lapchick, End Trafficking Program Officer, U.S. Fund for UNICEF
Marvelous script and courageous and brilliant cast… [we] feel able to act without feeling the kind of rage and hopelessness that gets in the way of doing anything.Emma Thompson, SOLD Executive Producer
Brilliantly made. Unlike other films on child trafficking and modern slavery, SOLD makes the problem personal for the audience. Though heartbroken by what she endures, the viewer is left inspired by Lakshmi’s strength and bravery, motivated to help end modern slavery through real-world action.

Amazing, very speechless – drawn in. I work with young people every day – domestic victims – and what I appreciated is you can feel what is being lost in these children. Through the film you can see what’s still there if we can reach them in time. That was a real tension held in the film.Melinda Giovengo, Youthcare
