About the film

Gemma Arterton said ”The Escape will be an exploration of marriage and mother-hood. It is frank, honest and unapologetically from the woman's point of view. It will be extremely personal. I look forward to embarking on it, surrounded by people I trust and who understand the intention, and to digging deep and finding truth”.
