"Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek are excellent."
The Village Voice.
Based on the international best-selling autobiographical books Papillon and Banco, this action-packed adventure follows the epic life of Henri "Papillon" Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian underworld who is framed for murder and condemned to life in the notorious penal colony on Devil's Island. Determined to regain his freedom, Papillon forms an unlikely alliance with quirky convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega (Rami Malek) who, in exchange for protection, agrees to finance Papillon's escape. This film is a thrilling journey and a powerful portrait of the resilience of the human spirit, even in the face of utter inhumanity. -- (C) Elevation Pictures, 2017, Czech Republic/Spain/USA.
