A Palestinian assassin is targeting prominent Israelis. An English actress is recruited by the Israelis to infiltrate the assassin's terrorist cell. This will require all of her acting talents and put her at considerable risk.
Nothing Ben Stiller has ever done before or behind the camera could prepare you for the utter brilliance of his directorial achievement in this amazing series. His work with the actors is phenomenal, and his camera placement and movement is inspired. It's a thrilling series, with superb performances by all, with special mention for Patricia Arquette, who makes you completely get the double meaning of the title. Yes, the story is about a prison "escape." but it's also about Tilly (Arquette's character) trying to escape her dead-end existence. Memorable. Must-see. Award-worthy.
