Tara’s (Gemma Arterton) life is the picture many women are told they should dream of: a stay-at-home mom of two young kids – one boy, one girl – a handsome husband earning a handsome salary, and a beautifully appointed, modern home. Her withdrawn and melancholic mood shrugged off by family and friends, she’s told she should want for nothing. But she does want. Expertly capturing Tara’s rollercoaster of emotions, The Escape paints a picture of a drowning woman who desperately needs to come up for air.
