Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe’s newest movie Escape from Pretoria is now available to stream for free for Amazon Prime Video subscribers.
The thriller stars Radcliffe as a convict who plans his escape from one of the world’s toughest maximum-security prisons, in a story based on real-life events and the novel that was written by one of the escapees.
Escape from Pretoria reunites Radcliffe with Potter co-star Ian Hart (Professor Quirrell) who plays an older prisoner discouraging Radcliffe’s attempt to escape.
Radcliffe recently spoke about why he eschews big-name projects for more experimental stuff, telling Empire: “I’ve actually found it’s an incredibly liberating thing, to do the biggest thing you’re ever gonna do really f**king early. The financial success thing, that’s done. So just do things that make you happy.”
The outcome of the film being originally released in UK cinemas just before the first lockdown meant it didn’t really get to reach an audience. But now you can give it a go at home and see what you think as it makes its streaming debut.
