Name Escapes Me

Name Escapes MeA couple’s fragile unity is threatened when they realise that their only child may be guilty of something awful. Anthony, recently diagnosed with schizophrenia, rips MISSING posters of a blonde girl from lampposts as he roams his town alone one night, while his mother worries at home.

The next day, the family dynamic becomes clear: the marital resentment is etched in John and Margaret’s strained conversation; and although John tries to amuse his son, it is not reciprocated, and Anthony leaves his father dismayed. While he is in town seeing a friend, whose existence is questioned by John, the parents discover that their friend’s daughter is missing. Against their will, they must decided whether Anthony could be capable of a heinous crime before he returns home.

Directed by Humphrey Gibbs (UK)
