Movie propaganda

Lifer Frank Perry (Brian Cox) is determined to break out of prison and assembles a crew to help carry out his plan - right hand man Brodie (Liam Cunningham), hard man Lenny Drake (Joseph Fiennes) and resident drug dealer Viv Baptista (Seu Jorge). As they prepare the breakout, Frank's focus is distracted by the arrival of a young con, Lacey (Dominic Cooper), who reminds him of days long gone. 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), putting their plan under threat.

Action, adventure, escape - this gripping thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to adrenaline pumping end.
