By now you know that I am a big fan of films that take place in one location. Films like Buried, The Exam and most recently Roman Polanski’s Carnage.
I always find that films like these bring out the best in actors, as it makes the story that much more important along with the magnifying glass put on every move the actor/actress does.
We now get a film called Brake starring Stephen Dorff who plays a C.I.A agent who wakes up in the back of the trunk of a car, not knowing how he got there.
Synopsis for Brake:
Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff) is about to have a very bad day. He wakes up in total darkness, confused and disoriented. The only light comes from the blood-red digital numbers ticking away above his head. Jeremy quickly realizes he’s in trouble. It’s hard to breath. He can barely move. And no one will answer his cries for help. Then, he hears the sound of an engine and it all becomes clear…he’s trapped in the trunk of a moving car.
As his captors reveal themselves and their motives, Jeremy realizes he won’t be set free until he gives up the whereabouts of “Roulette,” a secret location where the U.S. President is taken in the event of a terrorist attack.
You can catch Brake in theaters on February 17th, 2012.
