For those who enjoyed Jacques Audiard’s A Prophet, CELL 211 is a must see!
Juan wants to make a good impression at his new job as a prison guard and reports to work a day early, leaving his pregnant wife, Elena, at home. Little does he know that his life will be changed forever changed by this simple act as, during his tour of the prison, he is knocked unconscious.
In the confusion, inmates of the high-security cellblock break free and seize the penitentiary. Concerned for their own safety, the prison officers flee, leaving Juan unconscious in the heart of the riot. When Juan awakens, he quickly realizes that in order to survive, he must pretend to be a prisoner.
As the drama heightens, the government becomes involved, and officials become afraid of political repercussions in the Basque community. Unexpected changes occur in many characters both within and without the prison walls. Colored with political undertones, Cell 211 is a thrilling yet thoughtful reflection on the moral issues that continue to affect the socially dismal space of the state penitentiary.
