Papillon - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Based on the international best-selling autobiographic books "Papillon" and "Banco", the film follows the epic story of Henri "Papillon" Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian underworld who is framed for murder and condemned to life in the notorious penal colony on Devil's Island. Determined to regain his freedom, Papillon forms an unlikely alliance with a convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega (Rami Malek), who in exchange for protection, agrees to finance Papillon's escape. Directed by Michael Noer and written by Aaron Guzikoswski.

MOVIE REVIEW

When you remake a well-regarded movie that starred two iconic actors with a lesser cast and release it in the dead of August, you more or less know what you’re going to get. Papillon, a retelling of the Steve McQueen/Dustin Hoffman true-life drama starring Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek—no slouches, mind you—is a moderately entertaining but emotionally dry production.
