In Rupert Wyatt's directorial debut, THE ESCAPIST, Frank Perry (Brian Cox) is a lifer; in prison for the rest of his natural born days. He's never had a problem with that: he did the crime; he'll do the time. Until now. He gets a letter telling him that his only and much loved daughter is critically ill following an overdose. He knows he must see her and to do that he'll have to escape. But he can't do it alone. A motley crew of younger associates is assembled to enact his plan: Lenny Drake (Joseph Fiennes), Brodie (Liam Cunningham), and Viv Batista (Seu Jorge). As they prepare to break out, Frank's focus is distracted by the arrival of a young con James Lacey (Dominic Cooper) – a reminder of days long lost. As the new kid on the block Lacey also attracts the sadistic attention of Tony (Steven Macintosh), the drug-addict brother of wing-king Rizza (Damian Lewis). Personality conflicts put the escape in jeopardy and Frank is forced to find the energy and courage of the man he once was. From IFC Films.

Deutsch
Frank Perry sitzt schon seit 12 Jahren im Londoner Gefängnis und hat keinen Kontakt mehr zu seiner Familie. Als er nach langer Zeit wieder Post von dieser erhält, sind es schlechte Nachrichten. Seine inzwischen 21jährige Tochter ist drogensüchtig und hatte gerade zum zweiten Mal einen Herzstillstand. Er beschliesst auszubrechen, denn er hatte eine Schwachstelle in der Gefängniskirche hinter dem Beichtstuhl festgestellt. Zur Flucht wäre es aber nötig ganz tief in den Untergrund abzutauchen, um so durch unterirdische Verbindungsgänge einen der Londoner U-Bahnschächte zu erreichen. Da er das Unternehmen nicht allein bewerkstelligen kann, weiht er seinen besten Freund Brody und den kräftigen Lenny Drake ein. Leider erfährt auch Tony, der gewalttätige und drogenabhängige Bruder von Rizza, von den Plänen. Und Rizza, der heimliche Boss des Gefängnisses, ist der Gefährlichste von Allen...

Tikriausiai niekam neverta įrodinėti, kad gyvenimas kalėjime - tikras pragaras. Tačiau ir prie jo galima bandyti prisitaikyti - pasirinkimo vis tiek nėra. Ypač jei teisėjas paskelbė įkalinimo iki gyvos galvos nuosprendį be teisės į apeliaciją. Tačiau Frenkas Peris nesiruošia taikstytis su esama padėtimi. Už sienos liko jo mirtinai serganti dukra, kuriai neatidėliotinai reikalnga Frenko pagalba. Dėl dukters kalinys pasiryžęs bet kam. Ir štai Frenkas pradeda ruošti pabėgimo planą. Įvykdyti sumanytą avantiūrą vienam galimybės nėra ir Frenkas kreipiasi pagalbos į tokius pat kaip ir jis - kalinius, kuriems irgi nėra ko prarasti. Santykiai tarp kameros kaimynų toli gražu ne draugiški, tačiau dėl pabėgimo teks pamiršti nesutarimus.

Pусский
Наверное, никому не надо доказывать, что жизнь в тюрьме — это сущий ад. Конечно, и к нему можно попытаться приспособиться — выбора все равно нет, остается смириться со своей незавидной участью. Особенно если судья вынес приговор о пожизненном заключении без права пересмотра дела. Но Фрэнк Перри не желает мириться с подобным положением дел. За стеной, в «нормальной» жизни у него осталась дочь, которая сейчас смертельно больна и очень нуждается в помощи. Ради девочки Фрэнк готов пойти на все. И вот Перри начинает готовить план побега. Осуществить такую авантюру в одиночку не представляется возможным, и тогда заключенный решает обратиться за помощью к таким же, как и он, отщепенцам, которым больше нечего терять. Отношения между сокамерниками далеко не дружеские, но ради общей цели — освобождения — они забудут о разногласиях и сосредоточатся на побеге. По крайней мере постараются.

svenska

En avancerad plan tar sig form och Frank involverar flera grova medbrottslingar för att lyckas fly. Kommer de att lyckas lura vakterna och ta sig ut ur fängelset i tid?
