From Alcon Entertainment comes “Prisoners,” a Warner Bros. Pictures’ release starring Oscar and Jake Gyllenhaal (“Brokeback Mountain”), under the direction of Denis Villeneuve, who helmed the Oscar film “Incendies.”
How far would you go to protect your family? Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His sixyear-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.
