Details

A thrilling dramatisation of true events, Escape from Pretoria is based on the book by Tim Jenkin, played here by Daniel Radcliffe. Jenkin and Stephen Lee (Daniel Webb) are two white South Africans labelled ‘terrorists’ and imprisoned for their activism on behalf of the ANC. Sent to the brutal maximum security Pretoria Central Prison, ‘the white man’s Robben Island’, they start to plan a great escape that requires an ingenious use of handcrafted wooden keys. A stirring salute to the human spirit and to the many individuals of conscience who fought against apartheid.
