About this item
"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 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 1978 Academy Awards(R), and winner for 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.
