OF ‘ES­CAPE AT DANNEMORA’ ON SHOW­TIME AND THE MOVIE NET­WORK

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv - BY JAY BOBBIN

What was it like for you to film at ac­tual up­state New York lo­ca­tions where events in “Es­cape at Dannemora” took place? Well, for me, it felt kind of des­o­late. There was the prison it­self and ev­ery­thing that hap­pens in the prison, and the kind of sad­ness that I think ev­ery­one kind of ex­pe­ri­ences. But even around there, there was a rip­ple ef­fect where a lot of in­dus­try had moved out. All these peo­ple were just work­ing in the pris­ons, and there wasn’t a lot to do.

That was also a big part of it, in a so­ci­ety that I think makes women of­ten apolo­getic about their sex­u­al­ity, to have an op­por­tu­nity to kind of look at these themes. It was a part of Tilly I re­ally wanted to look at.
