  • The film gives vivid reality to those photos of disappeared children on milk cartons by letting us peek into the lives of two abducted children subjected to sexual abuse and then prostitution. show more

  • Tom Arnold plays the fatherly head of a child-prostitution ring and John Malkovich a sympathetic social worker - two clever casting twists that constitute the main interest in the grueling Gardens of the Night. show more

  • Recovery time is recommended after seeing Gardens of the Night, a harrowing, obliquely told story of kidnapping and forced child prostitution that conjures a world entirely populated by predators and prey. show more

    I saw this movie about a week ago and i cried when it was over.It has been a week and i cannot stop thinking about it.It just amazes me how anyone could take an innocent child and do the things that were done to them and get away with it.Ifelt so bad for those two kids especially the little boy.This movie wants to make you jump into your t.v and hurt the two men that took them and hug those two kids and tell them everything will be ok,but we cant.So yes i hope this movie is a wake up call for America and our Government and say there are sick people out there.What are we going to do to protect our children.

    I haven't been able to see this movie yet, but I just really hope that this ends up being a wake up call for all of us... This situation happens so much... Not just by strangers, but by parents, uncles/aunts, brothers and sisters... When will we be able to stop this situation from happening.. How many other children have to suffer... If you can't trust your family then who can you trust!!!!
