The Escape is a very unusual kind of a short film. It is more of an abstract piece of art which makes a person want to think, raise questions and then come to a self proclaimed conclusion. Man in this world is considered to be at the top of the family hierarchy, thus he goes out to make a living, support his wife and kids and face all the difficulties of life. But then there is a limit to it all because of which he starts to look for means of an escape. Not all men are equal, nor physically neither mentally. This short film is exactly about such a man who is looking for an escape from all the responsibilities of life that have been thrust upon him. Paul Franklin’s THE ESCAPE Is A Reflection Of Every Man
The short film also has this apocalyptic element to it as it shows London’s iconic structures such as the Big Ben and the London Eye submerged into water and sand. But then again, that might be a figment of imagination of the main character Lambert (Julian Sands). The interesting part Bill’s character is that he seems to be a selfish man who wants to get rid of all his responsibilities. The other interesting character is of Kellan (Art Malik), who plays the role of a mysterious man in hiding. He is offering help to Bill to escape reality in exchange of giving away his most beloved possessions.
The short film has a star studded cast, with very well known on screen personalities who have made their appearances on both the big screen and the small. Julian Sands is in the lead opposite Art Malik and Olivia Williams plays the role of a wife, while Ben Miller as the work colleague.
The Escape is being screened at Regal Cinemas Battery Park and Cinepolis Chelsea 8 in New York.
