Golden Icon Award Hugh Jackman & Screening PRISONERS

by Denis Villeneuve Guests of Honour

This 45-year-old Australian is one of the most versatile and multi-talented actors of our time. The all singing, all dancing, all acting Jackman is as at home on screen as he is on Broadway. Jackman’s worldwide breakthrough came with his role as the phenomenal superhero Wolverine in the X-Man franchise. His filmography includes Woody Allen’s SCOOP (2006), Baz Luhrmann’s AUSTRALIA (2008) and Tom Hooper’s LES MISÉRABLES (2012, Golden Globe for Best Actor). Jackman proved his inimitable entertaining skills when he hosted the 2009 Oscars. Hugh Jackman will accept the Golden Icon Award in person on Saturday, September 28 at the cinema corso. He will present his latest film PRISONERS on the same evening.

PRISONERS: Keller Dover is a guy with both feet firmly on the ground. However, the family man is knocked sideways when his daughter Anna and her best friend Joy are kidnapped on Thanksgiving. With the ambitious young detective Loki in charge, a frantic search begins without initial success. The only clue is a curious caravan that was seen on Keller’s street on the day of the kidnapping. Loki orders the arrest of the driver, but has to release the mentally handicapped suspect due to lack of evidence, something Dover finds difficult to accept. Knowing that the life of his daughter is at stake, he decides to take things into his own hands. In this thriller Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal fight on the same side, but with very different means.
