Product description

Review

In his riveting memoir...Moore tells the true story of how his addiction to drugs landed him in the infamous Klong Prem prison (aka the Bangkok Hilton), where he found himself fighting for his life-literally.

-- "Flavorwire"

A relentlessly active account of a Liverpool man's experiences in Thailand's underworld of kick-boxing, drug dealing and prison...You don't often come across someone who has met Sylvester Stallone and lived like Rambo.

-- "Nerve"

A Prayer before Dawn is-at one and the same time-a true story, a prison drama, a survival movie, a desperate love story, and an extraordinary tale of redemption. Above all, it is a poignant and uniquely human story.

-- "Jean-Stephane Sauvaire, film director"

With a clear hierarchy within the inmates, crooked guards all around, and a heightened sense of danger lurking, Billy struggles with both his addiction to heroin and getting into this place riddled with unhinged individuals. When the opportunity arises to train again and do what he loves, it may be the only thing that can save Billy from truly breaking.

-- "Filmoria"

[A] Cannes hidden Gem: Joe Cole survives a Thai prison in A Prayer before Dawn. French director Jean-Stephane Sauvaire traveled to Thailand to tell the real-life story of a British convict turned Muay Thai champion who hones his skills behind bars...Based on Moore's book about his time in one of Thailand's most brutal prisons, Klong Prem, aka the notorious 'Bangkok Hilton.'

-- "Hollywood Reporter"
