Starring Gemma Arterton, Dominic Cooper. Director Dominic Savage.
Tara is a quietly desperate and unfulfilled wife of a workaholic, self-absorbed and socially conscious husband, and with two obnoxiously demanding children. Eventually she tires of her husband’s demands and buys a one-way ticket to Paris, where she takes a break from her marriage and has the compulsory affair. After ‘finding’ herself she discovers that leaving a life behind is not that easy. Arterton is brilliant, although it is sometimes hard to empathise with her character’s essentially selfish, neurotic nature.
