Breakout DVD


Breakout 2013, Ticket Out 2010, Ray Liotta
























Ever since we became parents, our children has become our priority, and everything we do, we always consider their health and safety first. Our worst nightmare is if something bad happens to them. I think this parent (not just mother) instinct really brings out the toughest character out of all of us, and I'm sure most of us agree that we will do anything to protect our children, even if it means for us to loose everything we have.

Breakout (Ticket Out in the US), screenplay written by the now famous Suzanne Collins, author of the Hunger Games, is about a mum (Alexandra Breckenridge, young maid in TV series American Horror Story) who had to run away from the law and her ex-husband to protect her children, as the law has granted her abusive ex-husband joint custody over them. She was provided help from an underground network who's purpose is to aid people in her situation, with Jim (Ray Liotta) transporting them from one safe house to another.

I really enjoyed the show (unfortunately I had to watch most of it on my own as hubby finished work at 10pm). The concept is not too common, so it's fairly refreshing. The pace was good, there was enough action to keep up the excitement, and there are moments of speculations and doubts as well to make me want to know what happens next. Then there is the really really pretty Alexandra Breckenridge. Don't get me wrong, I'm very straight (and ONLY straight!) and love my husband very much, but who doesn't like to watch something or someone pretty? She has gotten our full attention in American Horror Story already (I have 2 brothers and a husband. We talk about guys too!), but I prefer her in Breakout where she's more girly pretty (I'm sure the guys would prefer her in AHS though!).

The ending is left partially opened. I of course would love to know what would have happened next, but I guess I can still accept this, unlike some other shows where you just want your money back! I think the movie is worth watching, and the DVD that is being released on Monday 9th September is only £8.00 from Amazon UK, which I think is quite ok.
