Vincent (Patrick D. Green) is a popular pastor in is parish - but behind his facade, he's riddled with self doubt, and he has dark sexual fantasies he doesn't even like to admit to himself. And of late, his facade starts to crumble. Then one day, his foster sister Krystal (Kelly Godell) stops by at his place, who's in many ways the total opposite of him, she's outspoken, easy-going, hedonistic - and a bit of an alcoholic, and at the end of the day she's about as broken as he is. However, she brings out a different side in him, and soon he actually has a date with Katie (Laura Welsh), a loyal churchgoer who has long had a soft spot for him. But that date ends in nothing, as it only reveals to Vincent even clearer what he tried to suppress, that he's actually homosexual, and not only that, he has fallen for his best friend and colleague Marcus (Jonathan Daniel Miles). However, that self-realization makes him falling from faith even more, so much so that he fails to talk one of his flock out of suicide, and starts thinking out aloud about closing down his congregation. Eventually it becomes clear to him that he must express his feelings to Marcus - but at what price?


Escaping Freedom sure is a very interesting film, especially since it refuses to walk the beaten path stories like this usually take, doesn't try to hammer a message home or get their leads salvation in the third act, instead it asks thoughtful questions and tells its story in a very intimate way - which is also mirrored in the camerawork, much of it is handheld and sticking closer to the characters than per usual. And a directorial effort that avoids spectacle or even frills and takes its time to let the story unfold, and very natural performances from its ensemble cast further help to make this a pretty impressive movie.
