If you're looking for something to watch this long weekend, we've found just the thing.

Cleveland Abduction has shot up the long weekend recommendations list with viewers writing how 'hooked' it had them.

“Abducted and imprisoned, Michelle Knight finds the will to survive amid the most horrific and heartbreaking of circumstances in this true-crime drama.”  reads Netflix's synopsis.

The film, which was first released in 2015, is a dramatisation of the Ariel Castro kidnappings, focussing on Michelle Knight, who disappeared in 2002. 

Knight was the first of three people to be imprisoned by Ariel Castro, with Amanda Berry, aged 17 at the time, abducted in 2003, and Gina DeJesus, just 14 at the time, going missing in 2004.

Castro was eventually sentenced to imprisonment plus 1,000 years in prison, without the chance of parole, however he took his own life just one month into the sentence. 

"I literally cried almost the entrie movie" wrote one person in the comments on YouTube with another saying "its so sad and inspiring all at the same time".
