Benicio Del Toro, Patricia Arquette, Paul Dano and Bonnie Hunt star in 'Escape at Dannemora', a Showtime Limited Event Series directed and executive produced by Ben Stiller. Based on the stranger-than-fiction prison break in upstate New York, 'Escape at Dannemora' follows the story of two convicts who spawned a statewide manhunt and were aided in their escape by a married female prison employee who became involved with both men. It's a bizarre tale filled with twists and turns, yet through it all there's one thing that unites the inmates and citizens of Dannemora - everyone's looking for a way out.
Well worth being patient
- Escape at Dannemora review by JB
Very artistic scenes in bleak Canadian surroundings - gorgeous, in an ironic way, around the gaol. Visually stunning. The story takes a while to gather momentum, but it's well worth the wait as time passes for the prison and we come to see that the narrative is really about who these largely impassive people are, and what their emotions might be.
