"Prisoners" movie quotes follow the twists in turns in the crime thriller about two girls who are kidnapped. Denis Villeneuve directed the film which was written by Aaron Guzikowski. "Prisoners" opened on September 20, 2013.

In "Prisoners," the Dover families of Keller, Grace, Ralph and Anna (Hugh Jackman, Maria Bello, Dylan Minette and Erin Gerasimovich, respectively) visit the Birch home of Franklin, Nancy, Eliza and Joy (Terrence Howard, Viola Davis, Zoe Borde and Kyla Drew Simmons, respectively) for Thanksgiving. All is going well up until the two youngest girls, Anna and Joy, go missing after playing outside. A local search doesn't find the girls, but they do notice a strange RV in the neighborhood. Keller calls 911 and Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) responds to the case.

Loki is able to locate the owner of the RV, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but with no physical evidence, the authorities are forced to release Jones. Days pass and Keller becomes angry that the police are not doing more. Wanting the safe return of the girls, Keller takes things into his own hands and captures Jones, holding him as a prisoner, but as Loki digs deeper into the case, it becomes questionable whether Jones is really responsible after all. Pushed to their limits, all are close to losing their souls in exchange for justice.

"Prisoners" joins a movie season already packed with other hits such as "The World's End," "Getaway," "Drinking Buddies," "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," "Paranoia," "Kick-Ass 2," "We're the Millers, "Elysium," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," "2 Guns," "Blue Jasmine," "The Wolverine," "The To Do List," "Only God Forgives," "World War Z," "Man of Steel," "This Is the End," and "Olympus Has Fallen."
