Ticket to Heaven

Unremarkable but fairly solid story of a young man, thrown into despair by the departure of his girlfriend, who joins up with the Heavenly Children, a Moonie-like group. When he comes increasingly to reject the outside world, his family is driven to kidnap and 'deprogramme' him back to some sense of normality. All fairly predictable stuff, but delivered without too much sensationalism, strong on showing how the apparently harmless cult insidiously undermines the man's confidence and independence. Notable for performances of unusual conviction.
