Escape from Pretoria is the true story of Tim Jenkin (Daniel Radcliffe) and Stephen Lee (Daniel Webber), young, white South Africans branded "terrorists", and imprisoned in 1978 for working covert operations for Nelson Mandela's banned ANC. Incarcerated in Pretoria Maximum Security Prison, they decide to send the apartheid regime a clear message and escape! With breath-taking ingenuity, meticulous surveillance, and wooden keys crafted for 10 steel doors, they make a bid for freedom... Beyond a thrilling will-they-won't-they-escape, this is the story of an oppressed majority's struggle, and two ordinary men who stood up to be counted in the pursuit of equality for all.

Critics Consensus: Escape from Pretoria doesn't quite do justice to the fact-based story it's dramatizing, but that lack of depth is offset by suitably gripping jailbreak action.

14+ COMMON SENSE

Tense political prison thriller has some violence, language.
