Prisoners (R)

Keller (Hugh Jackman), the protagonist of Prisoners, is a hope-for-the-best but prepare-for-the-worst type. In the basement of his home, he keeps enough supplies and weapons to survive an apocalypse. He’s a blue-collar, hands-on kind of guy, but he’s also a devoted father and husband and even a spiritual man. When he takes his son out deer hunting for the first time, he teaches the boy to quietly recite The Lord’s Prayer before pulling the trigger. Played by Jackman with great tenderness and heart, Keller is a commanding, funny person — the sort you’d love to have as a friend but would not want as an enemy.
