Hugh Jackman is my favorite actor.
I love his range, from Oklahoma and Les Mis to Wolverine.
One of these days, he should receive a well-deserved Oscar. He is spectacular in the 2013 movie PRISONERS.
His character is Keller Dover and when, “Dover’s daughter and her friend go missing, he takes matters into his own hands as the police pursue multiple leads and the pressure mounts. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family?”
The rest of the cast in this movie is also perfect, from Melissa Leo to Maria Bello.
It took me a couple of days to watch this on DVD, which is just fine with me. I don’t like going to theaters now days due to health reasons, I would never make it through the entire two and one-half hours of PRISONERS, and this is one of those movies you must watch carefully through every minute.
I don’t recall seeing any publicity about this when it came out, but it won a slew of different “best” nominations, and won one Oscar.
Oh, this is NOT for children! Some grown-ups may not like the violence. It is a very intense movie, and has parts that are scary.
Still, it is a great flick!
