Film: The Escapist

The Escapist is a Prison Break drama film set in a British prison and revolving around Frank Perry, one of the oldest inmates who has long since given up hope. When he finds out his beloved daughter has become a drug addict and is near death following an overdose, he decides he’s to break free. He formulates a plan to escape, and the twin narratives of planning the escape and the actual escape are played simultaneously.

The film was very well-received despite limited release, and it finally gives the incredible Brian Cox a starring role. The rest of the cast consists mostly of that guys, including Damien Lewis, Joseph Fiennes, Dominic Cooper, Liam Cunningham, Seu Jorge and Steven Mackintosh.


The Escapist provides examples of the following:
