Spanish cinema has been on a bit of a roll in the last few years with the likes of [REC], and now the latest thriller to arrive from the country, Cell 211, is coming to the UK and hitting DVD on January 9th, 2012. We’ve got three copies of the prison riot drama to give away in this great comp!
In the film, Juan Oliver is knocked unconscious during a prison tour on the day before he begins his new job as prison officer. He is rushed to the empty cell 211 and left to come around. Meanwhile, inmates of the high security wing break free and riots break out. When he awakes he realises he’s trapped and has to pretend to be a new prisoner in order to survive…
Engaging and intense, Daniel Monzón’s gripping prison drama swept the board at the Goya Awards (the Spanish equivalent of the Oscars), winning eight awards including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor. Paul Haggis (Crash) has already been asked to write the US remake and is rumoured to direct the project.
