Denis Villeneuve’s newest film, “Prisoners,” could have the potential of making a run for The Oscars this year. I’ve been hearing some good buzz about the film since it debuted at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Enough though I’ve never heard of the director, Denis Villeneuve, and writer, Aaron Guzikowski, the film still has a lot of momentum behind with the cast ensemble and with my homeboy, Roger Deakins, handling the cinematography.
Check out some pretty intense clips below, courtesy of Collider.com:
Keller Dover is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His 6-year-old daughter and her young friend are missing, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki arrests its driver, but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect’s release. Knowing his child’s life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The desperate father will do whatever it takes to find the girls, but in doing so, may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
“Prisoners,” which was directed by Denis Villeneuve, hits theaters September 20th, 2013, and stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Terrance Howard, Viola Davis, Melissa Leo and Paul Dano.
