Midnight Express DVD

Midnight Express DVD
Midnight Express is the harrowing story of Billy Hayes, a young American tourist condemned to a Turkish prison for his futile attempt to smuggle hashish out of the country. Made an example of by a corrupt legal system and a victim of ineffectual diplomacy, Hayes is sentenced to 30 years and must overcome ruthless brutality and his own descent into madness in order to survive and, hopefully, escape. Nominated for six Academy Awards 1978, and winner of Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Score, Midnight Express is led by the powerful direction of Alan Parker (Mississippi Burning, Evita), with searing performances from Brad Davis, John Hurt and Randy Quaid. It is an unforgettable look at one of the most dangerous prisons in the world, and one man's fight to get home.
