The new film "Escape Artist" passionately poses the question of whether one person can still make a difference in contemporary America

The new film "Escape Artist" passionately poses the question of whether one person can still make a difference in contemporary America, in which the government, military, corporations and the media call the shots for the happily distracted masses.

Alex Miller plays James Patrick, a young man with a troubled past whose teenage rebelliousness turns into a personal crusade, then a social media-fueled cultural phenomenon and finally a massive rebellion that threatens to bring down the nation in the film produced by James Garrett.

The timely political drama was also written & directed by James Garrett and created based on his music album "Escape Artist" under his artist name "Only Now Existing (O N E)."

That's also the name of the movement – the O N E MOVEMENT -- complete with de rigueur stylish tats – that's driven by social media and captures the hearts and minds of disenfranchised Americans and sets the stage for a climactic Election Day showdown in the film.

In the aftermath of a tawdry 2016 presidential campaign, a film that puts the spotlight on the issues that truly matter to us, the power of social media to sway presidential elections and expose corrupt power structures, and stumps for individual thought rather than swallowing bromides, "Escape Artist" could not be more relevant.

-- Todd Cunningham, 'The Wrap'
