In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two box office successes, one far more acclaimed than the other.
Prisoners was the English-language breakthrough film for director Denis Villeneuve. But by the time he got the script, several filmmakers had already come and gone.
Indecent Proposal had no such director trouble, meanwhile. Instead, it had one lead star who wanted to quit, and another whose casting got the studio sued.
Stories of both are told in this episode.
