“LEVEL 16”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - View From The Couch -

There are def­i­nite “Hand­maid’s Tale” and “Step­ford Wives” qual­i­ties to this fan­ta­sy­drama, about a fa­cil­ity that trains young women to be thor­oughly com­pla­cent and co­op­er­a­tive with others in prepa­ra­tion for the time when they might be adopted. Katie Douglas – a young Canadian ac­tress who did su­perb work in the Life­time movie “Be­lieve Me: The Ab­duc­tion of Lisa McVey” – plays a re­bel­lious teen who re­fuses to sub­mit to the site’s rules, pos­ing a chal­lenge for the staff and trou­ble for her­self. Prob­a­bly not sur­pris­ingly, escape be­comes her pri­or­ity. Celina Martin, Sara Can­ning (“The Vam­pire Diaries”) and Peter Outer­bridge also star.
