Prisoners, the new film from director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies), will be making its premiere next week at the Toronto International Film Festival.  The film stars Hugh Jackman as a working-class father who sets out to track down the man he believes is responsible for kidnapping his daughter and her friend. Along the way, he runs up against the big city detective (Jake Gyllenhaal) assigned to the case.  In this clip, Gyllenhaal’s detective confronts a suspect played by Paul Dano.  Plot and character wise, there’s not much to the clip, but what really jumped out at me was the cinematography.  It’s dark and raining and the only the flashlights are cutting through.  Of course, when your cinematographer is Roger Deakins, amazing visuals are pretty much a given.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  The film also stars Maria BelloTerrence Howard, and Viola DavisPrisoners opens September 20th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Prisoners:

Keller Dover is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His 6-year-old daughter and her young friend are missing, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki arrests its driver, but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect’s release. 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 girls, but in doing so, may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
