From IFC Films comes writer-director Dominic Savage’s intimate, deeply emotional drama The Escape.  featuring a remarkable lead performance by Gemma Arterton (Runner Runner, Quantum of Solace.)

The Escape is a perceptive, compassionate portrait of a woman in a rocky existential crisis. Tara (Arterton), a housewife in suburban London, is living a life that is no longer hers: it belongs to her overworked, self-absorbed husband (Dominic Cooper); her young son and daughter; and the numbing routine of housework and childcare. In desperate need of a change, Tara one day makes a bold decision. Armed with a one-way ticket to Paris, she leaves everything behind to rediscover herself in a new city – but soon learns that starting over isn’t as easy as it seems.

“Gemma Arterton excels as a shattered mother of two in Savage’s absorbing and uncompromising film.” – Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk Critics 

“Only a brave filmmaker-and even braver actors-would attempt to tackle one of the most vexing questions of contemporary life: Why is ‘having it all’ not quite enough?” – Shirley Sealy, Film Journal International 

“Wrenching scenes from a disintegrating marriage, beautifully played.” –  Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter 

“Although its title might imply some intrepid action movie, writer-director Dominic Savage’s intimate, deeply emotional drama ‘The Escape’ proves, in its own way, just as daring and harrowing an experience.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
