At the Circle Cinema – A PROPHET

TULSA, Okla. – – The non-profit Circle Cinema presents “A PROPHET (Un prophète)” from writer/director Jacques Audiard.

Condemned to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena cannot read or write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. He is 19 years old. Cornered by the leader of the Corsican gang currently ruling the prison, he is given a number of missions to carry out, toughening him up and gaining the gang leaders confidence in the process. Malik is a fast learner and rises up the prison ranks, all the while secretly devising his own plans.

Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, and Grand Prix winner at Cannes Film Festival.

“A PROPHET (Un prophète)” is rated R, is 155 minutes in length, and is in French with English subtitles. It will open at the Circle Cinema on Friday April 23. For more information, visit, or call 592-, that’s 592-3456.
