Prisoners movie scene

Hugh Jackson goes to dangerous extremes in the thriller Prisoners.

A man who’s lost everything proves he is capable of anything in the 2013 crime thriller film Prisoners.

Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman, Real Steel) is facing every parent’s 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 (Jake Gyllenhaal, Love & Other Drugs) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano, The Extra Man), but a lack of evidence forces his release. As the police pursue multiple leads and pressure mounts, knowing his child’s life is at stake the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family?

Directed by Dennis Villeneuve (Incendies), Prisoners co-stars Viola Davis (The Help),  Maria Bello (The Company Men), Terrence Howard (Red Tails) and Melissa Leo (The Fighter).

The well-reviewed R-rated film opened wide in U.S. theaters in September, 2013, grossing a handsome $60 million at the U.S. box office.

The Blu-ray and DVD of the film include two featurettes as bonus features.
