Certificate 15

A critical and commercial success, Prisoners saw Villeneuve bring his taut, powerful storytelling style to Hollywood. Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), who prides himself on never leaving a case unsolved, strives to find two young girls who’ve been abducted, while the father of one of the girls (Jackman) takes the law into his own hands. Complex, brooding and compelling, this psychological thriller boasts stand-out performances from an all-star cast, and Oscar®-nominated cinematography from Roger Deakins.
