Rupert Wyatt’s acclaimed film The Escapist will screen in competition at the Dinard British Film Festival which takes place in France from October 2nd through the 5th; Click here and here for more information.
Jack Foley of Indie London gave The Escapist 4 stars and said:
“The Escapist hooks from the beginning by making clever use of a fractured narrative, cutting between the breakout itself and the build up to it. Hence, it poses questions about its central
characters that are only answered as the film progresses. It also tips its hat to established genre rules without necessarily copying them for exploitative thrills… Cox almost inevitably emerges with the most credit, his wily veteran offering a fascinating character to be around as he’s forced to wake from his slumber to do what’s right by his daughter and cellmate. But there’s strong support from the likes of Fiennes, as a volatile bruiser; Lewis, as a softly spoken killer, and Cooper, as the youngster clearly out of his depth.”
Helen McCrory’s new feature film Flashbacks of a Fool starring Daniel Craig will also screen at the Dinard British Film Festival.
