"It's very rare, I think, that a piece of art or of storytelling could really help to change things... 'Sold' is one of those films. It's a beautiful piece of work."
“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
“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
“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.” - Alex K. Monroe, Senior Campaigns Manager, Walk Free
