The Escape

Gemma Arterton stars as Tara, a housewife and mother suffocating under the weight of her domestic burdens who makes the extraordinary decision to abandon her family in order to find herself. Shot in a claustrophobic, urgent, realist style by cinematographer Laurie Rose (frequent collaborator of Ben Wheatley), Dominic Savage’s intensely visual storytelling is aided by Arterton’s raw and affecting performance. Arterton also takes the producer’s role.
