Meg Altman (Foster) is at a crossroads. Suffering through a painful divorce from her husband, pharmaceuticals millionaire Stephen Altman, Meg
buys an Upper West Side Manhattan townhouse for herself and her 11-year-old daughter, Sarah (Stewart). She intends to go back to school,
raise her child and start a new life. The house she chooses to purchase was built by an eccentric millionaire who built a hidden ‘panic room’
to protect himself in case of a break in.
After moving in, the need for the panic room soon comes into play when their New York brownstone home is invaded by three intruders – Burnham (Whitaker), who knows everything about the room because he built it, Raoul (Yoakam) and Junior (Leto).

Jodie Foster says she's surprised Kristen Stewart, who played her 12-year-old...
