Critic Reviews for The Escape
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.
The finished product is an undercooked improv-heavy nightmare that's profoundly snobbish, patronising and trivial when it appears to be aiming, at every turn, for the opposite effect.
For all The Escape's weaknesses, it's held together with real sinew by Arterton, who lives and breathes the stifling air of Tara's habitat without needing to act up a storm at any point.
Neither of the two main characters is properly developed or backstoried. They are just spokes-folk for the sex war, dutifully feminised for our times.
A superlative performance from Gemma Arterton is at the centre of this almost unbearably painful and sad film from writer-director Dominic Savage.
