ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA
December 2, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Showtime, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
The acting in this new miniseries has been magnificent, and it’s early yet. Paul Dano and Benicio Del Toro star in this seven-hour miniseries, playing real-life convicts Richard Matt and David Sweat, who escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility in 2015 with help from prison employee Joyce Mitchell, played by Patricia Arquette – whose characterization here is unforgettably human, sensitive, and unglamorous. Even the sex scenes, so far, have been unsettlingly devoid of not only passion, but dignity.
