A father takes matters into his own hands when his daughter goes missing, as the police pursue leads.


Why watch this film?

Directed by Canadian Dennis Villeneuve, 'Prisoners' is his first English-language production. Though on the surface it may seem like just another thriller police movie that abounds in American cinema, it is not only grandly realized from the naturalistic vision of its director and legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins (nominated for an Oscar for this film), but also due to the script capable of taking the audience beyond typical genre films, to very dark and disturbing places of human will and morality. The cast is full of great actors with excellent work (including Viola Davis, Terrence Howard and Melissa Leo), but Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano deserve special mention.
