Inspirational Breakfast with Esther Higham

A tense prison break thriller, Escape from Pretoria is the incredible true story of Tim Jenkin & Stephen Lee’s imprisonment and escape during South Africa’s apartheidera. Daniel Radcliffe stars as Tim Jenkin, a real-life ANC activist who, along with Stephen Lee, played by Daniel Webber (The Punisher, The Dirt), were branded terrorists, and imprisoned in South Africa’s maximum-security Pretoria prison – the white man’s Robben Island. With Lee and fellow freedom fighter Leonard, played by Mark Leonard Winter (The Dressmaker), Tim made a complex and daring escape 18 months into his incarceration using nothing but hand-crafted wooden keys. 11th December 2019 marked 40 years to the day since their audacious escape. Escape from Pretoria, based on the biography by Tim Jenkin, also stars Ian Hart (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) and Stephen Hunter (The Hobbit Trilogy). Directed and co-written by Francis Annan and produced by Mark Blaney (This is Not a Love Song, Africa United), Jackie Sheppard (Africa United) and David Barron (Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella, Harry Potter). Signature Entertainment presents Escape from Pretoria at Cinemas from 6 th March, 2020
