Full film details

Stay-at-home mum, Tara (Gemma Arterton) lives in the suburbs of London with her two young children and her caring but unappreciative husband (Dominic Cooper). Constantly tied down with childcare and chores to take care of, it suddenly dawns her one day that she is not happy. Her mother tells her it’s just a phase, but is this a phase she can find her way out of?

At the verge of breaking point and in desperate need of change, she impulsively purchases a one-way ticket to Paris to try and rediscover herself. But she soon begins to realise that walking away from your life isn’t that simple.

A moving British drama, The Escape is a vivid portrait of a woman who’s lost and longing to be found. The film is directed by Dominic Savage who has worked on numerous films such as Born Equal and Freefall. The Escape stars Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans) and Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) who both put in a remarkable performance. The drama was a triumph at Glasgow Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.
