Eric (Jack O’Connell) is a violent young offender prematurely thrown into the dark world of an adult prison. As he struggles to assert himself against the prison officers and the other inmates, he has to confront his own father, Nev (Ben Mendelsohn); a man who has spent most of his life in jail. As Eric forges allegiances with other prisoners, he learns that his rage can be overcome and discovers the new rules of survival. But there are forces at work which threaten to destroy him.
PFS brings together the cinephiles of Philadelphia and generates so much support for independent cinema!
The staff at PFS is amazing and I have the opportunity to meet the minds behind the films that I love!
Great organization, well run, fun, terrific value.
I am hooked on the Philadelphia Film Festival. The more independent and foreign films the better!
Every year I am more impressed with the incredible programming that PFS secures for PFF. I feel lucky to live in a city with such a competitive festival.
The Philadelphia Film Festival is fantastic and an amazing value compared to other world class film festivals.
As lifelong movie buffs, belonging to PFS is the best investment we’ve made in our entertainment budget. I only regret not joining sooner.
PFS is Philadelphia’s window on world cinema.
We’ve attended the film festival since its second year, so we know that the Philadelphia Film Festival is the BEST event in all of Philadelphia.
A membership to this organization is worthwhile to anyone interested in all genres of film… I’m so glad PFS is a part of my life!
