Escape at Dannemora 2019 / Now On Amazon Prime

9.3

Staff

Here is a TV show where the performances are so good that it’s hard to give any credit to the story. Patricia Arquette as a prison employee, and Benicio Del Toro and Paul Dano as inmates are an unbelievable trio. They all shine in their own right in this true story of escape from a prison in Upstate New York. Arquette is almost unrecognizable in the role of a frustrated middle-aged woman who gets romantically involved with the inmates. Dano plays the young one, a smart but easily excited guy. Del Toro plays an experienced, shrewd, and boss-type prisoner. Together they take an already exceptional story and create one of the most realistic mysteries in recent memory. Because of this, the pacing might be slow for some – but remember, it’s not like the cast is difficult to follow.

It is a well written prison escape movie focusing more on characters rather that how they carry out the escape.
