“Batty has proved, in the Russian hostage drama “The Saratov Approach” and the Liberian survival drama “Freetown,” that he is a master at showing Latter-day Saints in claustrophobic life-and-death situations. He deploys that talent again here, turning what could have been a stage play into a cinematic experience within the jail’s close quarters.”

-Sean P Means, Salt Lake Tribune

“Out of Liberty doesn’t tell the story of Liberty Jail in the expected way. Instead, we are shown these prisoners and their situation through the eyes of a jailer who has an interest in upholding the law and no belief in their faith. His is a journey of growing understanding, but this is not a quiet, historical drama of conversion. Out of Liberty is a western jailbreak thriller.”
