Considering how protective Disney is of its brand, I’m surprised Escape from Tomorrow is allowed to have a theatrical release. Shot without permission at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, this feature film directorial debut by Randy Moore was screened at Sundance Film Festival and praised for both its guerilla-style filmmaking and story. Escape from Tomorrow will be released on VOD and in limited theatrical release on October 11, 2013.
An epic battle begins when a middle-aged American husband and father of two learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses. Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt his subconscious. An idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Chillingly shot in black and white, Escape from Tomorrow dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture’s obsession with mass entertainment.
