Trivia

The entire movie uses only five locations: The interrogation room, the control room, the hallway, Dr Olivia's office and the park in the epilogue. See more »

Goofs

In the final scene, the chess board is set up incorrectly. (The lower right-hand square should be white, not black). Also, as an added error in continuity, the board switches to the correct set-up later in the same scene. See more »

Quotes

Intense Psychological Drama
20 August 2018 | by mrdogcareSee all my reviews

Prodigy is a solid movie that happened to have a small budget. It has the feel of a theatrical play move than a big screen movie. Wonderful dialogue, some thrills and lots of emotion make this a must watch. A job well done by all involved in this production.
