Elizabeth Smart Finally Ready for a Movie to Tell Her Story

Fifteen years after her abduction, Elizabeth Smart says she is finally ready for a movie to tell her story. About the new Lifetime movie I Am Elizabeth Smart, Smart says, "I will say that it is the best worst movie I've ever seen. I mean, I think it's so well done. I think it was accurate. I'm very proud of it, but at the same time, part of me thinks I'll be happy if I never have to watch it again." Smart's story is currently being turned into two movies through Lifetime and A&E.

Elizabeth Smart said it required years for her to participate in a movie about her kidnapping ordeal.

Smart said Friday that she couldn't have done so immediately after her abduction from her Salt Lake City home in 2002 at age 14. She was rescued nine months later, and said Friday she was eager to "run away" from the experience.
