More about The Prisoner
A man wakes up in a mysterious place where people have numbers instead of names, and all traces of his former life are renounced as delusions. Welcome to “The Village,” the setting of the 2009 AMC miniseries, The Prisoner, coming to DVD on March 23, 2010 from Warner Home Video. A reinterpretation of the 1960s cult classic by Patrick McGoohan, The Prisoner tells the story of one man’s desperate quest to find his way back to his former life and reclaim his freedom. Jim Caviezel, Ian McKellen, Ruth Wilson, Jamie Campbell- Bower, Lennie James, and Hayley Atwell star in this powerful 6-hour miniseries, which combines a wide range of genres, from espionage to sci-fi, into an adrenaline-pumping, edge-of-your-seat thriller that will ultimately make you question what you think is real. The much-anticipated three-disc DVD set is filled with over three hours of extra content including audio commentaries, interviews, deleted scenes, and the behind-the-scenes diary of the 92 days of production.
Nobody resigns from Summakor. Once he had a name, a job with the mysterious spy-ops outfit Summakor and a life in New York. Now he has a number. He’s called 6, and everything has changed since he quit the many-tentacled agency. Suddenly he lives in The Village, a too-perfect paradise wretched with conformity. A society where all names are numbers. Where secret eyes watch over hollow bliss. Where dissent is rare and whispered. Where 6 knows he has one option: escape. Jim Caviezel portrays disoriented, determined 6 and Ian McKellen plays the serenely cunning Village overseer called 2 in a brilliantly reimagined, six-episode sci-fi riff on the Patrick McGoohan series of the 1960s – The Prisoner. Are 6’s experiences real? Happenings of a parallel universe? Imaginings of his own walled-in mind? Enter The Village….
