THE ESCAPE

A woman sets out to reclaim her life in this stirring, emotionally rich look at what it means to start over. Tara, a housewife in suburban London, is living a life that is no longer hers: it belongs to her overworked, self-absorbed husband; her young son and daughter; and the numbing routine of housework and childcare. In desperate need of a change, Tara one day makes a bold decision. Armed with a one-way ticket to Paris, she leaves everything behind to rediscover herself in a new city—but walking out on your life isn’t so simple… Built around a remarkable central performance from Gemma Arterton, The Escape is a perceptive, deeply compassionate portrait of a woman on the rocky road to becoming herself.

Starring: Gemma Arterton, Dominic Cooper, Marthe Keller, Frances Barber & Jalil Lespert

MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN

Ten years later, on the Greek island of Kalokairi, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant with Sky’s (Dominic Cooper) child while running her mother’s (Meryl Streep) villa. Her relationship with Sky has been turbulent and complicated for a while. Self-conflicted and worried that she can’t do it by herself without her mother around, but with Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie’s (Julie Walters) guidance, Sophie will find out more of Donna’s past. In finding out about Donna, Sophie will be discovering how she fronted The Dynamos, came to start up her villa on the island from nothing, met each one of Sophie’s dads (Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård, and Colin Firth), and raised a daughter, bravely on her own, without a mother to guide her – with an unexpected visit from someone she had not invited or never even met: her grandmother, Ruby Sheridan (Cher).

Starring: Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Dominic Cooper, Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård, Colin Firth & more!
