Gemma Arterton (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) stars as a woman who sets out to reclaim her life in the 2017 drama The Escape.

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, Captain America: The First Avenger), 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 walking out on your life isn’t so simple …

Written and directed by Dominic Savage and built around a fine central performance from Ms. Arterton, this one has been described as “a searching, morally complicated story … unfolds with astonishing authenticity” by Jeannette Catsoulis of The New York Times.
