The Irish/British co-production The Escapist, shot mostly in Dublin’s Kilmainham Gaol in 2007, closely follows the familiar ruts of the prison break adventure but with a couple of notable exceptions.

First off, the film opens with the gang of lads already on their way out and second, the chopped-up story turns half way through into an existential meditation on the meaning of redemption.
