A woman sets out to reclaim her life in this stirring, emotionally rich look at what it means to start over.

Tara (Gemma 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 walking out on your life isn't so simple.

Built around a remarkable central performance from Gemma Arterton, ‘The Escape’ is a perceptive, deeply compassionate portrait of a woman on the rocky road to becoming herself. This is a rewarding watch, with a career-best performance from Arterton.
