“Prisoners” is a dramatic/thriller, which tackles the issue of every parent’s worst nightmare. Keller Dover’s (Hugh Jackman) six-year-old daughter, Anna (Erin Gerasimovich,) is missing, together with her young friend, Joy (Kyla Drew Simmons,) and as minutes turn to hours panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV, which had been parked earlier on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano,) but due to lack of evidence, is forced to release the only suspect. Knowing his child’s life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The desperate father will do whatever it takes to find the missing girls, but in doing so, he may lose himself. This begs the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
