Prisoners, directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, was a pleasent discovery delivered by Netflix.
When Keller Dover’s (Jackman) daughter is abducted, the man will have to challenge his morals in order to save her. Meanwhile, the Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) investigates. The plot is complex and yet well assembled, with interesting plot-twists that keep high the audience’s attention. Thanks to that, the incredible lenght is strangely not an enormous problem.
Denis Villeneuve, one of the most praisde directors of these days, behind the camera also of Sicario and Arrival, leads an amazing cast. Great the performances of all the actors: among them, deserve to be mentioned Terrence Howard, Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo and David Dastmalchian. To watch.
