Ashley is a drama movie from the year 2013 that follows the story of a young teenage girl named Ashley. The film stars Jennifer Taylor as Ashley's mother, Michael Madsen as a passing stranger and Holly Taylor as the titular character, Ashley. Ashley is a troubled teenager who has been struggling with her mother's recent remarriage and the shift in her family dynamic. She is a quiet, introverted girl who is dealing with her pain in unhealthy ways such as cutting herself. When her father gifts her an old Polaroid camera for her birthday, Ashley takes it as an opportunity to capture the world through her lens, seeing the beauty in even the most mundane things.

One day, as Ashley is out exploring with her camera, she comes across a car crash and finds a man, who is badly injured. He pleads with her not to call the police and instead offers her money for her silence. Ashley, who is eager to help in any way possible and also in need of the money, accepts the offer.

The man, who introduces himself as Kevin, seems charming and kind, taking Ashley under his wing and showing her how to find beauty in even the darkest aspects of life. Ashley is quickly taken by him, and the two develop an unlikely bond that wavers between father-daughter-like and romantic.

As Ashley becomes more and more involved in Kevin's life, she begins to question his true motives and realizes the danger she's put herself in. Meanwhile, her mother begins to suspect something is off about her daughter's new friend and sets out on a mission to uncover the truth.

The movie explores themes of trauma, grief, and the lengths people will go to find comfort and companionship. It also delves into the complexities of relationships and the blurred lines between predator and mentor.

Jennifer Taylor delivers a powerful performance as Ashley's mother, who is struggling to connect with her daughter and is desperate to protect her from harm. Michael Madsen's portrayal of Kevin is equally impressive, playing the role of a manipulative and charming stranger with ease.

Holly Taylor, who plays Ashley, delivers a mesmerizing performance, perfectly encapsulating the emotional complexity of her character. As Ashley navigates the challenges of growing up, dealing with pain, and finding her place in the world, Taylor's performance captures the audience's attention, making them root for her character at every turn.

Overall, Ashley is a thought-provoking movie with a poignant message. It's a must-watch for anyone who appreciates well-acted and well-directed dramas with complex characters and thought-provoking themes.
