Rookie prison officer Juan Olivier has the bad luck to start work on the same day that kingpin prisoner Malamadre (Luis Tosar) sets off a riot. It's Juan's good luck that Malamadre doesn't know Juan's a screw. Already we're in spoiler territory, but this powerful, politically loaded prison thriller has plenty more surprises to pull. As tough and cunningly resourceful as its embattled antagonists, Cell 211 is the Spanish hit of the year, and winner of eight Goya Awards including Best Film, Director, Screenplay and Actor.
