Synopsis: Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extraterrestrial force, 'Captive State' explores the lives on both sides of the conflict - the collaborators and dissidents.

Reaction: Surprisingly effective. I didn't hav many expectations going in and I found it quite gripping right up to the end.

Personal Rating: 8/10
