    Escape at Dannemora

    ★★★½

    Really enjoyed what Ben Stiller did behind the camera with this because it’s such a pretty simple story that could have just been a movie of the week but luckily, along with all the actors, Stiller does plenty to elevate the material.

    All the characters are pretty cliche for a film like this but they are played well enough…
