A REASON TO LEAVE

A Reason to Leave is Norman Gregory’s first independent British feature. It is a gripping tale of a quest for redemption set in Dorset and Tuscany. Bathed in deception and sexual tension, nothing is what it seems in this drama with a dark twist at the end. The story revolves around four principal characters – Harry Webster, (Mark Wingett) Sarah, (Claire King) her daughter Bethany (Alice Bird) and a charismatic Italian, Luca (Simone Spinazzè). Their secrets are gradually revealed as the story progresses to its dramatic conclusion.

The breathtaking underwater cinematography and stunning visuals of the Tuscan countryside were filmed by Award winning Cinematographer Franz Pagot AIC MBKS. Sound Design is by BAFTA winner Peter Baldock and Post Production by Crystallight.
