From Alcon Entertainment comes âPrisoners,â a Warner Bros. Picturesâ release starring OscarÂ® nominees Hugh Jackman (âLes MisÃ©rablesâ) and Jake Gyllenhaal (âBrokeback Mountainâ), under the direction of Denis Villeneuve, who helmed the OscarÂ®-nominated foreign language film âIncendies.â
How far would you go to protect your child? Keller Dover (Jackman) is facing every parentâs 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 (Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces the only suspectâs release.
Knowing his childâs life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The desperate father will do whatever it takes to find the girls, but in doing so, he may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
