Another film I’ll be seeing in Toronto next month is Denis Villeneuve‘s new thriller Prisoners starring a stand out cast including Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano, Maria Bello, Viola Davis and Terrence Howard.
The kidnapping thriller centers on Keller Dover (Jackman) whose six-year-old daughter and her friend go missing. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Dano), 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?
Following its world premiere in Toronto the film will hit theaters on September 20.
