The Escape probes gender mores while surveying the wreckage of a marriage -- and offering the underrated Gemma Arterton another opportunity to prove her dramatic mettle.

A superlative performance from Gemma Arterton is at the centre of this almost unbearably painful and sad film from writer-director Dominic Savage.
The colors are rich and the direction is intelligent...but the overall effect is frustration leading to dissatisfaction.
Tara is a role that she has to inhabit without flash, and Arterton does so, and movingly, in every frame in which she appears.
A quiet domestic-drama chamber piece with a vein of pure desperation thrumming beneath it.
Subtle and slow and wrenchingly empathetic, "The Escape" is about gradually realizing that the life you have may not be the one you want.
Although its title might imply some intrepid action movie, writer-director Dominic Savage's intimate, deeply emotional drama "The Escape" proves, in its own way, just as daring and harrowing an experience.
Arterton's performance is incredibly emotive and well-judged.
A small trip on the surface. [Full Review in Spanish]
The film arrives at the right time and during a necessary reconsideration of the female experience. [Full Review in Spanish]
Despite Arterton's outstanding performance, the film weakens considerably in its last section...This undeniable decrescendo of enthrallment tells us that The Escape is a fair drama that could have been better.
Through conversations about courage that never manifests, creativity that's limited to cutaway shots of sunsets... a fleeting foreign romance feels like a cheap exit for a woman who is worth much more.
The Escape is an interesting attempt at showing mental health - depression in a stay at home mother.
