ESCAPE THE DAY is an imaginative love story told in snapshots that highlights a dynamic relationship by revealing the exciting and tragic ending before exploring the beginnings of the relationship from both partner's perspectives. The world of Escape the Day is a realistic representation of modern life, with an anachronistic sensibility that is somewhat self-aware. The opening scenes in the woods are dark and chaotic, and there is a distinct contrast between that and the rest of the film, which is light, but just as chaotic. The film focuses almost exclusively on the couple. That personal sense of adventure inundates the world of the film with human energy.
