Zelda Williams, the daughter of the late comedian Robin Williams, has taken on a very dark role for her next project. She stars in Girl in the Box, the new Lifetime movie that debuts on the network on Saturday, September 10 at 8 p.m. ET. Read on to learn about the movie and other opportunities to watch it.
Girl in the Box is based on the story of Colleen Stan, a woman who was held in captivity from 1977 to 1984. She was hitchhiking to a friends party when Cameron and Janice Hooker drew by. She agreed to go with them because they also had a child in the car. However, after driving for a while, Cameron Hooker pulled off the road and locked Stan in a wooden box.
When they arrived at the Hookers’ home, she had to sign a contract and became Cameron’s sex slave. He used her to live out bondage fantasies and forced her to sleep in a wooden box. In 1984, Stan finally escaped and later Janice Hooker reported her husband to police. Janice Hooker testified against her husband in the trial.
The main cast for the movie includes Addison Timlin as Stan, Zane Holtz as Cameron Hooker and Williams as Janice Hooker. Stephen Kemp made his writing and directing debut with the film.
