Stars from "N-Secure" the Movie, hit the Red Carpet at Atl. Station. Movie Opens 10/15

Atlanta, GA--  The stars of N-Secure and other local celebrities turned Atlantic Station into a Red Carpet event reminiscent of a Hollywood Premiere.  Atlantans were given the chance to see the sneek preview of the film before its official release of October 15th.

All in all, the movie N-Secure was a heart-wrenching movie.  It could have used more characters and spent more time on character development, but you hardly notice due to the emotional involvment you have with the few characters that you do see on screen.

The film touches on abuse, both physical and verbal, that occurs in the everyday world and how it can be found in some of the most unlikely places.

The movie should be an eye opening education for both men and women whom may find themselves in similar relationships and situations as certain characters in the film.
