New Film: SOLD opens this week in New York

The movie SOLD is about an impoverished Nepali girl  sold by her parents into sex slavery.  The film stars Gillian Anderson who plays a photographer who joins forces with an activist attempting to rescue enslaved women and children.  Jillian has been involved in a number of charities and sex trafficking is now one of her causes. Anderson says the film is a very difficult movie with a difficult subject matter, that of enslaved children.
