While she's been the talk of the town lately, having starred in blockbuster fare like Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans and Prince of Persia, Gemma Arterton also has a few small movies under her belt. The Disappearance of Alice Creed was a darling at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, and now it's coming to theaters on August 6th!
Two kidnappers, Danny (Martin Compston) and Vic (Eddie Marsan), ex-cons planning to make a mint on the ransom for a young woman, kidnap Alice Creed (Gemma Arterton), daughter of a rich businessman, and keep her hostage in an apartment which they've converted into a prison cell. Terrified and immobile at first, it soon becomes clear that Alice isn't about to let her captors use her as capital without a fight.
As determined to escape as Vic and Danny are to succeed, Alice enters into a battle of wills which strains the already fractious relationship between the two men. As the deadline for the exchange draws nearer, all three are brought close to breaking point, with Vic and Danny's foolproof plan descending into a desperate struggle for survival.
