The Escapist

The Escapist

In Cinemas Nationwide from 20th June 2008 Official Selection Sundance Film Festival 2008 Contemporary prison drama that unfolds as two parallel stories: one leads us through events building up to an escape attempt by five inmates; the other shows us the escape itself in minute, intense detail. But a twist at the end reveals that for one of the escapists his personal outcome is far more tragic than we had been induced to believe.
