Going Out has teamed up with Optimum Releasing to offer five readers the chance to win a DVD copy of the highlight acclaimed French prison drama, A Prophet.

Condemned to six years in prison, his debut in an adult detention facility, petty criminal Malik El Djebena cannot read nor write. He is just 19 years old, and about to embark on an apprenticeship of violence and humiliation.

Cornered by the feared kingpin of the Corsican mafia who rules the prison, Cesar Luciani, he is given a number of 'missions' to carry out. Gaining Cesar's confidence he is soon working for him on the inside, and later, using a series of day-release excursions, representing his criminal interests on the outside.

Haunted by visions, and determined to get on, he not only learns to read but also teaches himself Corsican, manoeuvring himself into Cesar's confidence while simultaneously building his own power base.

Directed by Jacques Audiard, and starring Tahar Rahim, Niels Arestrup and Adel Bencherif, A Prophet is both a searingly provocative and intensely personal portrayal of an innocent inside.
