I’m not sure how many times you can tell the same story—as amazing and globally captivating as it was—but this latest film about the 2018 Thai cave soccer team rescue is the first to let us hear from the boys themselves. That alone makes ‘Trapped’ worth the watch, but Thai director Palin Wedel elevates the film with perfect pacing and effective (and unintrusive) re-creations to help fill it out. Yes, by now we all know what happened, but getting the final missing piece lets us put it all together.

4.5/5 stars
