Back on Tuesday, September 12 – Gemma was in Toronto for the premiere of her new movie The Escape – which took place during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. She attended the event together with her co-star Dominic Cooper and director Dominic Savage.

THE DAILY MAIL – Gemma Arterton was on the move.

Her new picture, The Escape, was shooting on location in London, and I was tagging along for a day of guerrilla film-making.

Led by producer Guy Heeley, the leading lady strode through the streets of London: from Fitzrovia, then Bloomsbury, across the Marylebone Road and finally into King’s Cross station, where cast and crew stopped for a lunch of salad and stew.

Then it was off again, to a park where, I’m sorry to relate, a lot of dog owners had clearly not been picking up after their mutts.

Gemma and director Dominic Savage came up with the idea of making a film about the ‘taboo’ topic of mums who leave their kids.

Arterton described her character Tara — a mother of two who is married to a businessman called Mark, played by her pal Dominic Cooper — as a ‘creative person’.

‘But she’s got absolutely no outlet for her creativity — and what that means is that Tara feels trapped — though she’s not.’

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art-trained actress (making her debut as a producer on the film) and director Savage came up with an improvised blueprint of a script, which meant that the movie often veered off in ‘varied and interesting directions’.

‘This is about a woman who walks out on her family — which isn’t usually the term that’s used. Usually the word is ‘abandoned’,’ she told me, pointing out that when a father leaves, ‘he walks out’.

‘Abandoned by my mother’ is such a strong term — and I think it’s because of this idea of ‘How could they possibly do that?’ Because women should feel: that’s why we exist. And I don’t think that’s the case.’ The last film I can think of that tackled this subject was Kramer vs. Kramer.

Gemma said filming had been intense, but both she and leading man Cooper had been exhilarated by it. ‘It makes you think of your own life,’ she said.

‘I’ve always wanted to have children,’ she reflected. But since working on The Escape, she’s been thinking: ‘Oh my God . . . do I?’

Now that she has finished filming, Gemma has moved onto rehearsals for G.B. Shaw’s Saint Joan, for the Donmar Warehouse. (source)

VARIETY – Independent has picked up international sales duties on “The Escape,” a drama about a woman who abandons her husband and children. The film, which is directed by Dominic Savage (“Love+Hate,” “Freefall”), stars Gemma Arterton and Dominic Cooper. It will be introduced to buyers at Toronto.

Arterton stars in Toronto festival entry “Their Finest,” while Cooper is a hit on AMC’s “Preacher.”

” ‘The Escape’ will be an exploration of marriage and motherhood,” said Arterton. “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.”

The production team have workshopped the script for several months, and shooting is scheduled for October in the U.K. and France.

Independent’s managing director Andrew Orr said: “The Escape” deals with a subject that is “still very much taboo in our society – a woman who loves her children but does not feel fulfilled by the role of being a mother.”

Savage said: “I look forward to embarking on a journey of truth and revelation that will tell this important story of motherhood, marriage, responsibility and freedom.” (source)
