Screener Squad: Escape From Pretoria

Escape From Pretoria Movie Review


One of the most famous and ingenious prison break attempts in modern history is dramatized in Escape From Pretoria. The story follows real life activists Tim Jenkin (Daniel Radcliffe) and Stephen Lee (Daniel Webber) as they are thrown into prison for spreading leaflets opposing the Apartheid regime in South Africa. But they will not lie down and take their unjust punishment. Slowly but surely, the two rally other political prisoners to their side in hopes to taste freedom once more. Justin and Nathan will let you know if this is truly a breakout hit.


DIRECTED BY: Francis Annan

STARRING: Daniel Radcliffe, Daniel Webber, Ian Hart, Mark Leonard Winter, Nathan Page, Grant Piro, Adam Ovidia, Adam Tuominen, Tim Henkin
