A superlative performance from Gemma Arterton is at the centre of this almost unbearably painful and sad film from writer-director Dominic Savage.
- Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"The Escape is not a comfortable watch. But it is a rewarding one, thanks to Dominic Savage’s forensic investigation of a disintegrating marriage and career-best work by Gemma Arterton."
- Ian Freer, Empire Magazine

"Gemma Arterton is superb as a suburban wife and mother who decides to leave it all behind in this painful portrait of a failing marriage."
- Wendy Ide, Observer

"Tara... is desperate to consume and create art, yet time and again she’s reduced to a trophy or static muse. Arterton, a one-time Bond girl, surely knows how that feels."
- Charlotte O’Sullivan, London Evening Standard

Tara is a housewife in suburban London who’s raising two young children while married to an overworked, self-absorbed husband. In desperate need of a change, Tara makes the bold decision to leave everything behind and buy a one-way ticket to Paris. Her newfound freedom and journey of self-discovery soon gives way to the realization that walking out on your life isn’t so simple.
