Last week I’ve been for the second time at the cinema to watch the movie Prisoners and it was also the second night I couldn’t stop thinking about something.
This brilliant movie approaches a sensitive subject: the kidnapping of one’s child. The movie is dark, cruel, very sad and very close to reality. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a light, Sunday-evening movie, because it is not. From the superb performance of the actors, to the intelligent script, this is one of the very few movies that made me buy a second ticket.
Now let me get back on the actors. Paul Dano is brilliant in his role and makes the story twisted and dark, while Hugh Jackman gives a touching performance of a father so desperate, that he would do anything to get back his little girl. And last but not least, there’s that damn Jake Gyllehaal. Leaving aside his baby blue eyes and that annoyingly beautiful face and… What was I saying?
Oh, yes, even my father loved him. I mean his performance.
Go see this movies while it’s still in cinemas. My mother, a romance fan, hated me for dragging her to a creepy movie and in the morning she said it was absolutely brilliant.
Go for the plot, go for Jackman or Gyllenhaal, go for the writing of the story, just don’t miss it!
P.S. Talking about my whole absence and my summer would take a while, so if your curious to find out more about my adventures in France and Italy visit my photography blog here
