From Alcon Entertainment comes “Prisoners,” a Warner Bros.
Pictures’ release starring Oscar® nominees Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) and
Jake Gyllenhaal (“Brokeback Mountain”), under the direction of Denis
Villeneuve, who helmed the Oscar®-nominated foreign language film “Incendies.”
How far would you go to protect your family? Keller Dover
(Hugh Jackman) is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His six-year-old
daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes
turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had
earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki
(Jake Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of
evidence forces his release.
As the police pursue multiple leads and pressure mounts,
knowing his child’s life is at stake the frantic Dover decides he has no choice
but to take matters into his own hands. But just how far will this desperate
father go to protect his family?
Led by Jackman and Gyllenhaal, the dramatic thriller “Prisoners”
features an all-star cast, including Oscar® nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”),
Golden Globe Award nominee Maria Bello (“A History of Violence,” “The Cooler”)
