Wrongfully convicted for murder, Henri Charriere forms an unlikely relationship with fellow inmate and quirky convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega, in an attempt to escape from the notorious penal colony on Devil's Island.
On second thoughts, thank Heavens they remade this.
The witch-hunters of the media will most likely be banning all Dustin Hoffman films now, whitewashing him from history, after his continuing trial by media, as the originals will suddenly be quietly never spoken of again as it suddenly becomes inappropriate to show them...
So thankfully the makers of this.... thing..... had the foresight to remake one of the films containing him.
Now they just need to remake all of the other Hoffman/Spacey etc. etc. films.
At least Hollywood will have an excuse now for their endless remakes.
