Amazon Prime Video will tonight premiere Jodie Foster’s new film, The Mauritanian.

Directed by Kevin Macdonald and based on the NY Times best-selling memoir “Guantánamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi, this is inspiring the true story of Slahi’s fight for freedom after being detained and imprisoned without charge by the U.S. Government for years.

Alone and afraid, Slahi (Tahar Rahim) finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley) who battle the U.S. government in a fight for justice that tests their commitment to the law and their client at every turn.

Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by a formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch), uncovers shocking truths and ultimately proves that the human spirit cannot be locked up.

The Mauritanian stars Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zachary Levi, Saamer Usmani and Shailene Woodley.

The Mauritanian premieres Wednesday 24 March 2021 on Amazon Prime Video
