The Escapist International Trailer (2008)

An extraordinarily visual and visceral thriller that had its world premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival, The Escapist stars Brian Cox as a man who is serving a life sentence in prison. When a letter informs him that his daughter is critically ill, he decides he must see her before it is too late and concocts an escape plan. He assembles a motley crew of unlikely companions each of whom possesses a special and necessary skill that will help with his far-fetched scheme. Juxtaposing the intricate preparations for the break-out with the actual escape itself, the film becomes an intense, existential drama about every man's need to free himself from confinement and to redeem himself for past failings.
